The 2018 celebrations will be divided into two different parts : the EXEC AWARDS on june 6 , and the AW AWARDS GALA on june 7 . While the EXEC AWARDS will celebrate mostly the business side of our industry (categories such as Business Man of the Year , Founder / Entrepreneur , Marketing Executive , etc) , the AW AWARDS will celebrate mostly the performers , studios and the rest of the business and services . Please have a look over the categories (VOTING PAGE) , the ones marked with “EXEC” are obviously part of the EXEC AWARDS .
“We dont like to change the rules during the game , but we have analyzed the nominees , counted votes to see if some categories are popular or not , and made some modifications to the structure of our show”- Alex Gheorghe said .
The following categories were removed from our program :
Alternative / Inked Model of the Year
EXECUTIVE Media Buyer
plus , we merged the Web & Mobile Monetization Platform categories into a single one (Monetization Program of the Year) . We also merged the Online forum or community with Best Online Media or publication .
We also changed the name of the CIS Studio of the Year to Russian Studio of the Year .
Beside this , we listened and added 3 new categories :
– Freemium Queen and Premium Queen – dedicated to live cam models working on one or another type of platform (freemium or premium) – and Best Training Program , category where only studios producing top models can nominate themselves .
We would also like to bring into your attention the HONORIFIC AWARDS . All the AW AWARDS sponsors will be able to give honorific trophees to their partners or models during the EXEC awards . Please check at the bottom of this page for the sponsorship packages to see how many trophees your sponsorship includes . Celebrate your models or partners by giving them this honorific recognition .
