New York, NY (PRWEB) April 12, 2007
ZOOZOOM, which is published by McEye Media, has been nominated in the Best Fashion Website category for the third time in its history. It has also been named an Official Honoree, in which "the 11th Annual Webby Awards recognized sites and teams that demonstrated a standard of excellence." Of the more than 8,000 entries submitted to the 11th Annual Webby Awards, fewer than 15% were distinguished as an Official Honoree.
ZOOZOOM won the Fashion Webby in 2002, was nominated in 2005, and in the meantime won commendations from TIME.com, a Pixel Award, a Silver Davey and others.
ZOOZOOM 'The Original Online Glossy' nominated for The 11th Annual Webby Awards in the Fashion category.
ZOOZOOM's coverage of New York Fashion Week Spring 2007 has been selected as an Official Honoree for the News/Documentary/Public Service category in The 11th Annual Webby Awards.
Publisher David McIntyre said "It's a great honor. It's a great time to be ZOOZOOM. We haven't followed the current web publishing playbook, our main focus has been producing original high-end content, in other words Professional, and after six years the industry is moving towards us. Major fashion houses are advertising with us and our inventory is sold out. This nomination reinforces our ongoing position as one of the premium fashion destinations online."
"The Webby Awards honors the outstanding work that is setting the standards for the Internet," said David-Michel Davies, executive director of The Webby Awards. "ZOOZOOM's nomination is a testament to the skill, ingenuity, and vision of its creators."
As a nominee for a Webby Award, ZOOZOOM is also eligible to win a People's Voice Award. Voting is open to the public from April 10th to April 27th at http://peoplesvoice.webbyawards.com
Winners will be announced on May 1, 2007 and honored at The 11th Annual Webby Awards in New York City on June 5th. The ceremony will be hosted by comedian and actor Rob Corddry, star of Fox's new sitcom "The Winner" and a former correspondent for "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."

Awards and Commendations
Rated by TIME as one of the coolest websites of 2005; Webby Nominated for Best Fashion Site in 2005 and Webby Winner of Best Fashion Site 2002; ZOOZOOM has also been Adobe Site of the Day, winner of a Silver Davey and is the current holder of The Pixel Awards, Fashion.
ZOOZOOM is designed so that the photographs automatically resize to fill the screen, the bigger the screen the bigger the picture. "You should see this on a 30 inch monitor... wow!" says Publisher David McIntyre. The navigation is simple and the viewer sees the image, not the internet.
Unlike other sites that are plagued by small ads that share the screen with the content, ZOOZOOM's proprietary design allows content to be displayed without ads and the ads to be delivered full-screen at a time and place that is in synch with the viewer -- it's as nonintrusive as the ads at the end of a TV show. The results are breaking industry records, with some select campaigns enjoying click-through rates of over 20%!
