Industry members who would like to make pre-nom suggestions to the GAYVN Awards staff may email firstname.lastname@example.org for a username, password and link to the submissions page. The pre-nom website, usernames and passwords will be active until 12:01 a.m. PT March 6th.
Until then, users may access their lists to make additions, deletions and corrections.
“You are free to suggest as many items as you like in each category,” said Janet Gibson, chief operating officer for parent company AVN Media Network. “Do note, however, that being shrewd about your suggestions will yield a more desirable result than creating a laundry list of titles, not all of which may represent your best work or your company’s.”
Studios are asked to provide two copies of each title they would like the GAYVN Awards judges to consider. The DVDs should be shipped to arrive no later than 5 p.m. PT March 12. Address all deliveries to:
9400 Penfield Avenue
Chatsworth, CA 91311
Questions about the site or the awards process may be directed to email@example.com.
The 2010 GAYVN Awards will be presented during a gala ceremony in April. Details will be announced soon.
