Winners will be honored at The Webby Film & Video Awards on June 9th and The 12th Annual Webby Awards Gala on June 10th held in New York City.

Hailed as the "the Internet's highest honor" by the New York Times, The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet. The Webby Awards is presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, a 550-person judging academy whose members include Internet pioneer Vinton Cerf, R/GA's Chief Bob Greenberg, "Simpson's" creator Matt Groening, Arianna Huffington, and Harvey Weinstein.

"The Webby Awards honors the very best of the Internet," said David-Michel Davies, executive director of The Webby Awards. "Zannel's win is a testament to the skill, ingenuity, and vision of its creators."

A truly mobile-based social network, Zannel's Instant Media Messaging™ service allows users to instantly and visually communicate with their friends anytime and anywhere by posting video, picture, and text updates from their phone to start real time conversations.

"We're honored to have our work recognized by the Academy," said Braxton Woodham, CTO of Zannel, "and we will continue to work hard to provide the best possible service for rich mobile communication."

The 12th Annual Webby Awards received a record 9,500 entries from over 60 countries and all 50 states. Founded in 1996, The Webby Awards are known worldwide for its famous five-word speech limit. Past headline-grabbing speechmakers include Al Gore ("Please don't recount this vote"), Beastie Boys ("Can anyone fix my computer?"), and Prince ("Everything you think is true").
