Even if we don’t admit, we all like to be appreciated for our hard work once in awhile. Exactly this is the idea behind AWAwards which was presented for the second time this year. A festive way to gather the greatest people of the live cam industry and to celebrate each other as it is deserved.
This year as well, the gala was held in the Scoica Land Ballroom in Mamaia, one of the most illustrious locations of the strip. Hundreds of people attended and over a thousand people watched the livestream of the event online. The huge interest was no surprise as this year’s hosts were two cam industry icons, LittleRedBunny the highly acclaimed cam model, and Douglas Richter, industry veteran, participant of many successful projects throughout the years.
Although it was a festive event, a drop of bitterness got mixed in the air. The show was entirely dedicated to everyone’s friend Bob Raley who we tragically lost this year.
The theme of the show was fetish this year, hosts and dancers wrapped in latex, chains, giving a kinky highlight to the spectacle, but our hosts also made sure to make us laugh with their spicy dialogues and improvisational comedy, social experiments conducted on the crowd, by making them follow crazy instructions, or even to join the dancers on stage.
But the real show started after this, when companies, studios, company representatives, cam models received awards in over 30 categories. We witnessed joyful and emotional moments on stage, as winners took their trophies.
For sure, AWAwards became a brand member of the event series, so hosts of the next year were announced in the most stylish way; spanking their butts on stage. In 2017 two of the most extravagant and loved characters of the industry will be the masters of ceremony, namely Nikki Night, Cam4’s iconic Webcam Coach and Thomas Skavhellen, the only person who can get away with showing up in robes on a white party. Judging from this, prospects for the next awards gala are bright.
So push those projects, releases, new features and hope next year we can see you on stage receiving your award. We surely can’t wait to celebrate you.
