TopStory_55A6B40E-C295-11E2-9BB7-D19A666B3BE8Adult Video News recently posted the following information on its official website:

AVN Media Network is now accepting pre-nominations for the 2014 AVN Awards. Producers, manufacturers and retailers should immediately request access to the restricted pre-nom website in order to submit their movies, products, outlets and other entities for awards consideration.

In order to be eligible for a 2014 AVN Award nomination, a movie or product must be released by Oct. 7, in accordance with the following guidelines: made available for VOD download and/or physically stocked with either five wholesale distributors or 100 retail outlets; movie titles only released via VOD as of Oct. 7 must be in stock in physical format with five wholesale distributors or 100 retail outlets no later than Oct. 15. The eligibility period includes any movie or product released between Oct. 1, 2012 and Oct. 7, 2013.

To submit pre-noms, candidates must register for a user account at the AdultCentro-powered pre-nom site, which they may do by going to: If approved for access, they will receive a notification email and may log in to begin entering their pre-noms. The site will remain open until midnight Oct. 7.

AVN strongly suggests companies and individuals begin submitting their pre-noms now and continue to do so through Oct. 7, as there will be no extension of the deadline. Once approved for access to the pre-nom site, users may visit it as many times as necessary until the deadline.

AVN asks producers and manufacturers to be judicious in their pre-noms, submitting only those titles and items they strongly believe have a chance at being nominated rather than submitting all product released during the eligibility period.

Production companies must supply AVN with all pertinent information in their pre-nom entries, including the full stage names of all the performers in the sex scenes and the names of all the behind-the-camera professionals in the technical categories such as editing, cinematography, music and others.

By Oct. 8, AVN asks that producers send two (2) DVD copies of each movie or series it would like considered, as well as sample materials used in marketing campaigns if seeking consideration in those categories. Novelty companies should also provide two (2) samples of each product they would like considered. All items should be mailed or hand-delivered to:

AVN Media Network

Attn: Nominations

9400 Penfield Ave. Suite 100

Chatsworth, CA 91311

Retailers are welcome to pre-nom any wholesale distributor they feel is worthy of being nominated. Similarly, manufacturers and distributors are free to pre-nom retailers in the various categories for consideration.
