(PRWEB) April 26, 2010 -- Original online content from Starworks Group has been nominated for the 14th
Annual Webby Awards. Alongside the launch of her new scent for Comme des Garcons called DAPHNE,
Daphne Guinness made a short film with co-Director David Parker and All Day Everyday. The original art piece
called “Mnemosyne” embodies her concept of scent. The 3-minute film was distributed through the Internet and
first seen on September 3rd, 2009 at The Dover Street Market alongside the limited edition fragrance.

 “Mnemosyne” was nominated for a Webby Award in the “Experimental” category. As a nominee for a Webby
Award, Mnemosyne is also eligible to win a People's Voice Award. Voting is open to the public until April 29th
at http://webby.aol.com. All winners will be celebrated at a star-studded ceremony in New York City on June
14th.

 “Scent is directly related to memory,” Daphne explains about the film’s narrative. “It is something of a sensory
path, evoking snapshots of one’s past as you smell it. It has the power to transport you from the room in which
you stand, to a place buried within the depths of your memory. I wanted to illustrate that scent can take you on a
journey.”

 Hailed as the "Internet's highest honor" by the New York Times, The Webby Awards is the leading international
mark of distinction, honoring excellence on the Internet, including Websites, interactive advertising, online film
and video, and mobile web sites. Established in 1996, the 13th Annual Webby Awards received nearly 10,000
entries from all 50 states and over 60 countries worldwide. The Webby Awards is presented by The International
Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.
