TORONTO — Good for Her announced that the official nomination period for the 7th annual Feminist Porn Awards will be closing on Feb. 17.

The Feminist Porn Awards honor pornographers whose work offers a fresh perspective on the sexual expression of women and other adult industry members who finds themselves under-represented in mainstream pornography.

The company said in order to be considered for a Feminist Porn Award, submissions must meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • The work depicts genuine pleasure, agency and desire.  These movies may also include a focus on connection, communication and collaboration between the performers and/or between the performers and filmmakers.
  • The work expands the boundaries of sexual representation on film, challenges stereotypes and presents a vision that sets the content apart from most mainstream pornography.  This may include depicting a diversity of desires, types of people, bodies, sexual practices, and/or an anti-racist or anti-oppression framework throughout the production.

Categories for awards may include, but are not limited to: Canadian content, lesbian/dyke, diverse cast/representation, emerging filmmaker, kink/fetish, lesbian/dyke, straight, trans and website.

Four DVD screener copies of each work to be considered should be mailed to:
