2021 XBIZ Awards pre-nominations now open

Pre-nominations are now open for 2021 XBIZ Awards

Adult industry publication XBIZ has announced that the pre-nomination period for the 2021 XBIZ Awards is now open. The XBIZ Awards presented by MyFreeCams are scheduled for January 14, 2021.

XBIZ discontinued its race-based awards categories in 2018, and this year is eliminating gender-based categories for Performer of the Year, Cam Model of the Year, Clip Artist of the Year, Best New Performer, Best Acting – Lead, Best Acting – Supporting, and the new Premium Social Media Star of the Year category is also open to all genders. Several of the awards for professional productions have been combined or removed to recognize the drop in quantity of releases due to COVID shooting restrictions, and more categories have been added for online-only content.

Pre-nominations for the awards can be made via XBIZ.net until midnight on September 30, 2020.
