The Webby Awards, the leading international honor for web sites, today recognized Audio-Technica.com and GameSnake.com as Official Honorees, a distinction that recognizes sites exhibiting remarkable achievement. Both sites were produced by EYEMG - Interactive Media Group of Akron, Ohio.

The 10th Annual Webby Awards received a record number of entries from over 40 countries and all 50 states. Out of the over 5,500 entries submitted, fewer than 20% received this honor and were deemed an Official Honoree. Winners will be announced on May 9, 2006 and will be honored at a gala event in New York's Cipriani Wall Street on June 12, 2006.
