3D World was an Australian street press publication for the dance music community. After being founded in Sydney in 1989,[1][2] ownership of the publication changed hands several times before publication shut down in 2011.[3][4][5] It was superseded by Three Magazine, another publication by Street Press Australia Pty Ltd which "was born out of the ashes of 3D World" in August 2011.[6]

Dance Music Awards[edit]

3DWorld Publishing also founded the Dance Music Awards (DMA) to recognise achievements by musicians in dance music as well as hip-hop, which was then considered underground.[7][8] Nominees in each category were selected by a panel from the music industry and then voted on by the general public to determine the winners.[7][9] Awards ceremonies featured DJ set performances from various artists, such as DJ Ajax.[10] By 2006, it was regarded as "Australia's longest running, biggest and best dance music awards."[11]
