LOS ANGELES — The 2018 Transgender Erotica Awards may not be right around the corner, but its show runners have announced that pre-nominations are now open to those working in the adult industry as well as fans of transgender material and performers at

The voting period runs from today until October 17, 2017.

Making the pre-nomination list for our judges is always difficult, which is why we rely on industry and fans to submit whom they think should be included,” said Steven Grooby. “It’s not just a popularity vote; we look at all suggestions and then draw up a list from which we make a shortlist of nominations. I’d encourage anyone who believes that a specific model, scene, director or DVD should be included for the competition, to fill in the pre-nomination form so we can get the most relevant and fairest nominees for the awards. This is the tenth year we’ve done this, and we believe we have the fairest and most transparent nomination and judging system possible.” said Grooby.

The pre-nomination process is open to both fans and adult industry professionals. Submissions can be made at from today until October 17, 2017. The eligibility period for consideration is from November 15, 2016 to November 15, 2017.
