'Beatles: Rock Band' website nominated for Webby internet award

http://www.examiner.com/x-2082-Beatl...internet-award

Harmonix Music Systems, Inc. announced Monday that thebeatlesrockband.com, the website for "The Beatles Rock Band" game, has been nominated for Best Games-Related Site in the 14th Annual Webby Awards.

The Webby Awards are a leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet.

In announcing the nomination, the company said "TheBeatlesRockBand.com introduced people to the unique interactive experience presented by "The Beatles Rock Band"game. It provided in-depth background information on the people, places and instruments featured in the game using cutting-edge web design techniques and high-resolution, behind-the-scenes videos."

“TheBeatlesRockBand.com was a true labor of love for the Harmonix Web Team,” said Jeff Chausse, Harmonix web director. “Everyone at Harmonix put a ton of passion into the once-in-a-lifetime experience of making "The Beatles: Rock Band." We really wanted the game’s website to convey the love, talent, and extreme attention to detail put into the game, and I think we accomplished that with a website that is at once cutting-edge, yet timeless.”

As a nominee, TheBeatlesRockBand.com is also eligible to win a Webby People's Voice Award, which is voted online. From now until April 29, fans can cast their votes in The Webby People's Voice Awards at http://webby.aol.com.

Winners will be announced May 4 and honored at a ceremony in New York City June 14, where they will have an opportunity to deliver a five-word speech for the Webbys. Past Webby Award winners - and their speeches - included Al Gore ("Please don't recount this vote."), Stephen Colbert ("Me. Me. Me. Me. Me.") and Michel Gondry ("Keyboards are full of germs."). For a full list of last year's five-word speeches, please visit: http://www.webbyawards.com/press/speeches.php.

The Webby Awards are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, a 650-person judging academy whose members include Internet co-inventor Vinton Cerf, R/GA's Chief Bob Greenberg, "Simpson's" creator Matt Groening, Arianna Huffington, and Harvey Weinstein.
