Start Your Engines: AVN Opens Gate on 2018 Awards Pre-Nominations

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Hard as it may be to believe, that time of year has arrived: AVN Media Network is now accepting pre-nominations for the 2018 AVN Awards. To pre-nom something in any category, adult industry professionals must request access to the restricted pre-nom website here in order to submit their movies, products, outlets and other entities for awards consideration. Those who have registered in the past to submit pre-noms for previous years must re-register for the 2018 Awards. The pre-nom website will remain open until midnight on Sept. 30, 2017, which is also the eligibility deadline for 2018 Awards consideration. AVN also opened pre-nominations today for the returning GayVN Awards; for information on that, click here. The 2018 AVN Awards Show is scheduled for Saturday, January 27, at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Angela White and Harli Lotts will co-host the 35th annual ceremony. This year, for the first time, content released exclusively on membership sites will be eligible for AVN Awards consideration in any applicable sex scene category. Previous to now, only content in the categories of Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene, Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene, Best Oral Sex Scene, Best Anal Sex Scene and Best Virtual Reality Sex Scene was considered from online-only platforms. For the 2018 AVN Awards, web scenes in any existing AVN Awards sex scene category will be considered, provided they meet the eligibility requirements (see further details below). AVN has also added two new categories for 2018 in the Web & Technology arena. The first new category is Best New Website, to recognize the most notable online adult entertainment destinations launched between Oct. 1, 2016 and Sept. 30, 2017. The second addition is Best Clip Website, which will honor online portals that have enjoyed a boom in popularity of late through which independently produced adult clips are sold directly to consumers. In addition, a number of revisions have been made in the Video category realm, most significantly in those categories pertaining to fetish/specialty fare. What were formerly known by the admittedly clunky monikers of Best Specialty Movie - Other Genre and Best Specialty Series - Other Genre have been renamed Best Niche Movie and Series. In following, AVN has introduced the talent category of Niche Performer of the Year, to honor men and women who appear primarily in fetish-themed productions, including those in the BBW, BDSM, mature and other specialized genres. Finally, in an effort to help industry members properly navigate our pre-nom site, AVN produced a how-to video that breaks it all down to make it easy for even the most tech-challenged Luddites in the Pornosphere to handle. That video is available to view here. See below for further details on eligibility for the 2018 AVN Awards. Eligibility Period To be considered in any of the video categories a title or scene must have been made available commercially during the eligibility period, which runs from October 1, 2016, to September 30, 2017. If a sex scene is released as both a standalone web scene and as part of a movie released on DVD or VOD, the scene will by default be considered part of the movie. For consideration in all other categories, a movie must be released in its entirety by September 30, 2017. Any scene considered for a 2018 AVN Award will be void from consideration in all future years if included as part of any movie released after September 30, 2017. DVD/VOD Eligibility To be considered for a nomination, movies released via DVD/VOD must either fit AVN’s traditional distribution requirements of being stocked with five wholesale distributors and/or 100 retail outlets (on DVD), or be made available for VOD download and/or streaming as follows: • Must be available through a minimum of two (2) major for-pay VOD providers, defined as ones carrying movies from at least 100 active labels/studios. • Must have clearly marked post dates within the eligibility period across all qualifying VOD platforms carrying it. • Companies wishing to submit VOD-only titles for consideration must provide links showing that said titles meet the above requirements. Standalone Web Scene Eligibility To be considered for nomination in an applicable sex scene category, scenes must be released on a site that has members who are paying a monthly fee to access the site’s content. As with producers of content that is distributed on DVD and VOD, membership sites must also maintain 2257 records. Scenes released through clip stores are not eligible.  The categories for the 2017 AVN Awards are as follows: VIDEO All-Girl Performer of the Year Best Actor Best Actress Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene Best All-Girl Movie Best All-Girl Series Best Amateur/Pro-Am Movie Best Amateur/Pro-Am Series Best Anal Movie Best Anal Series Best Anal Sex Scene Best Anthology Movie Best Art Direction Best BDSM Movie Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene Best Cinematography Best Comedy Best Continuing Series Best Director – Feature Best Director – Foreign Feature Best Director – Foreign Non-Feature Best Director – Non-Feature Best Double Penetration Sex Scene Best Drama Best Editing Best Ethnic Movie Best Ethnic/Interracial Series Best Foreign Feature Best Foreign Non-Feature Best Foreign Series Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene Best Gonzo Movie Best Group Sex Scene Best Ingenue Movie Best Interracial Movie Best Makeup Best Male Newcomer Best Marketing Campaign – Company Image Best Marketing Campaign – Individual Project Best MILF Movie Best New Imprint Best New Series Best New Starlet Best Niche Movie Best Niche Series Best Non-Sex Performance Best Older Woman/Younger Girl Movie Best Oral Movie Best Oral Sex Scene Best Orgy/Gangbang Movie Best Screenplay Best Sex Scene in a Foreign-Shot Production Best Solo/Tease Performance Best Soundtrack Best Special Effects Best Star Showcase Best Supporting Actor Best Supporting Actress Best Taboo Relations Movie Best Three-Way Sex Scene – Boy/Boy/Girl Best Three-Way Sex Scene – Girl/Girl/Boy Best Transsexual Movie Best Transsexual Series Best Transsexual Sex Scene Best Virtual Reality Sex Scene Clever Title of the Year Director of the Year Female Foreign Performer of the Year Female Performer of the Year Mainstream Star of the Year Male Foreign Performer of the Year Male Performer of the Year MILF Performer of the Year Niche Performer of the Year Most Outrageous Sex Scene Transsexual Performer of the Year WEB & TECHNOLOGY Best Affiliate Program Best Alternative Website Best Clip Website Best Dating Website Best Membership Website Best New Website Best Porn Star Website Best Solo Girl Website Best Virtual Reality Product/Site Best Web Director PLEASURE PRODUCTS Best Condom Manufacturer Best Enhancement Manufacturer Best Fetish Manufacturer Best Lingerie or Apparel Manufacturer Best Lubricant Manufacturer Best Pleasure Product Manufacturer – Small Best Pleasure Product Manufacturer – Medium Best Pleasure Product Manufacturer – Large RETAIL Best Boutique Best Retail Chain – Small Best Retail Chain – Large Best Web Retail Store FAN AWARDS Favorite Cam Girl Favorite Cam Guy Favorite Camming Couple Favorite Female Porn Star Favorite Indie Clip Star Favorite Male Porn Star Favorite Porn Star Website Favorite Trans Cam Performer Favorite Trans Performer Hottest MILF Hottest Newcomer Most Amazing Sex Toy Most Epic Ass Most Spectacular Boobs Social Media Star
