LOS ANGELES — XBIZ has opened its pre-nomination period for the adult industry's awards event of the year, the 2016 XBIZ Awards, presented by premier live cam network LiveJasmin.

To submit pre-nominations in any of the awards categories, industry professionals must be registered members of the XBIZ.net social network and use the online submission form to record their entries. The upgraded submission form provides users the option to submit a single entry to multiple award categories, up to three.

The pre-nominations period will close midnight on Wed., Sept. 30.

Six new award categories have been added for the 2016 show in an effort to be more inclusive of previously unrecognized market segments and in response to feedback from members of the adult industry.

In the Movies & Production field, for the first time an honor will be given to the Performer Showcase Release of the Year. This award will go to the best movie that is centered on a single performer.

In the Web & Tech field, XBIZ will introduce awards for Live Cam Model of the Year both male and female. These honors will recognize outstanding achievement by a single model in the field of live cams.

In addition, XBIZ will debut two new Adult Site of the Year awards: For Women and Virtual Reality.

The Adult Site of the Year – For Women award will go to the best site created and marketed specifically for a female audience; and Adult Site of the Year – Virtual Reality will recognize outstanding work in the emerging VR sector.

In the Pleasure Products field, XBIZ for the first time has created the Sexpert of the Year award that will recognize the most outstanding educator within the realm of sexual health.

XBIZ also renamed its award categories in the transsexual genre to Transgender Studio of the Year, Transgender Release of the Year, Transgender Director of the Year, Transgender Performer of the Year and Adult Site of the Year – Transgender.

In order to be eligible for consideration for a 2016 XBIZ Award, movies and pleasure products must be released between Oct. 3, 2014 and Sept. 30, 2015.

The 14th annual XBIZ Awards, hosted by adult film superstar Stoya, will coincide with the industry’s trade events series of the year, XBIZ 2016, which annually features an unparalleled lineup of guest speakers and special events dedicated to exploring the future of the adult industry. Stay tuned to XBIZ.com for upcoming announcements about the 2016 XBIZ Awards.
