LOS ANGELES — XBIZ is pleased to announce that pre-noms are now open for the 2020 XBIZ Europa Awards, the adult industry’s biggest awards event in Europe, which is set for a worldwide broadcast on Oct. 22 via streaming network XBIZ.tv as the climactic finale to the first-ever virtual edition XBIZ Berlin conference.

To be nominated, companies must have a base of operations located within Europe and performers must reside in Europe — with the exception of “Global” categories, for which all companies are eligible. Content shot in Europe qualifies regardless of the parent company’s home base.

In order to be eligible for consideration for an XBIZ Europa Award, movies/content and pleasure products must be released between Aug. 1, 2019 and Aug 31, 2020.

Industry members may submit pre-nomination entries via XBIZ.net. The deadline for entries is midnight, Aug. 31.
