Members of the online adult industry with an activated YNOT ID may log-in here to vote. Others may register at YNOTID.com. Voters must be actively employed in the adult industry at the time they cast a ballot; all accounts will be screened for eligibility.
Ballots will be tallied in the good ol’ democratic way (barring Russian intervention): one person, one vote, and all votes have the same weight. Call-center employees, sock puppets and anyone else who attempts to subvert the process will be reported to a special prosecutor.
Winners and nominees alike will celebrate with a lavish ceremony Sept. 15 in Prague’s opulent National House of Vinohrady. Sponsors and attendees who have purchased seats or tables will be treated to sophisticated entertainment in the best viewing areas of the venue while enjoying top-shelf cocktails and a gourmet dinner. The VIP treatment is funded by exclusive Platinum sponsor Terpon. Gold sponsors include BongaCash, Traffic Company, Studio 20, xLoveCam, ImLive.com, Flirt4Free, DivaTraffic, Rich Girls Studios, MojoHost, Night Prowl Studio, Live Studio, Aphrodite Studio, Lourdes Studio and Webcamming.ro.
Those without reservations may enjoy the ceremony from free seating in the balcony, where a cash bar will be available.
As in previous years, the seventh-annual gala will take place during The European Summit. Complimentary transportation will be provided to and from the awards show venue.
