Y’all, we are so pleased to announce that the YNOT Cam Awards will return to Avalon Hollywood on August 7, 2019!
As with last year’s inaugural event, the show’s in-person audience will be industry-only, with full dinner service, open bar and pre-show entertainment provided for its VIP guests.
The show, along with the red carpet event on Vine Street, will again broadcast live from the heart of Hollywood, CA. The live stream will be free of charge for webcam fans, performers and industry professionals around the world. Those lucky industry VIP guests who attend in-person will be treated to a glamorous evening at a historic Hollywood venue just yards away from the famous intersection at Hollywood and Vine.
“The YNOT Cam Awards was created as a celebration of adult interactive performers and the incredible work they do on live cam networks and custom clips platforms,” explained Connor Young, CEO of YNOT.
“The mission of the YNOT Cam Awards is to honor their tireless work and to raise awareness of the amazing and positive ways that interactive technologies are changing the modern adult entertainment business. We think the Avalon is the perfect venue for an event of this caliber and we’re thrilled to be back in Hollywood, the heart of the entertainment industry,” Young added.
The 2019 awards will build on 2018’s well-received debut, when more than 95 cam and clips performers competed for top honors in 19 award categories. The 2018 show featured memorable performances by comedians Kelsey Cook and Sammy Obeid and was hosted by cam crossover star Shawna Leneé.
There are *so many* awards shows — what’s different about the YNOT Cam Awards?
The categories for the YNOT Cam Awards are designed to challenge old stereotypes about adult entertainment. The award categories for the event are *not* built around outdated clichés that reduce models to body parts, ethnic stereotypes or sex acts. Instead, the awards focus on the unique talents, personalities, skills and creativities of our industry’s performers. The event also broke new ground by opening up many of its categories to performers of all genders, letting cis and trans women and men compete together.
“Last year our team had only a vision, so it was an immense thrill to see that vision come to life on stage at the Avalon for the very first time,” Young explained.
“The YNOT team wanted to produce a show that would put cam and clips performers directly in the spotlight, to recognize the importance of what they do, and to leave everyone in the audience feeling respected and appreciated,” Young added. “Where our industry often focuses on its traditional video stars, we felt it was time to also properly recognize the cams and clips stars whose popularity has been growing significantly with fans of online adult entertainment. Seeing everyone have such a great time in Hollywood was truly rewarding for our entire team and we can’t wait to do it again.”
The nominee suggestion period for YNOT Cam Awards 2019 will open in May, with voting scheduled for mid-June through late July. Companies interested in sponsoring this year’s event or purchasing reserved floor-level VIP tables, may contact firstname.lastname@example.org details.
