Both Silverchair and Powderfinger received 6 nominations, including two for artisan awards for video production and album cover artwork. The artisan winners were announced in today's ceremony as a prelude to the official October event, with Silverchair picking up Best Video and Powderfinger Best Cover Art.

Sydney dance outfit Sneaky Sound System scooped the most total nominations - they're up for six awards, after missing out on their two artisan categories of Best Video and Engineer of the Year.
