TORONTO—Good for Her has announced that the nominations period for the 8th annual Feminist Porn Awards now is open. The Feminist Porn Awards honor "pornographers whose groundbreaking work offers a fresh perspective on the sexual expression of women and everyone who finds themselves under-represented in mainstream pornography."
The official nomination period for consideration for the Good For Her Feminist Porn Awards will close on February 1, 2013.
In order to be considered for a Feminist Porn Award submissions must meet at least two of the following criteria:
1) Women and/or traditionally marginalized people were involved in the direction, production and/or conception of the work.
2) The work depicts genuine pleasure, agency and desire for all performers, especially women and traditionally marginalized people.
3) The work expands the boundaries of sexual representation on film, challenges stereotypes and presents a vision that sets the content apart from most mainstream pornography. This may include depicting a diversity of desires, types of people, bodies, sexual practices, and/or an anti-racist or anti-oppression framework throughout the production.
Categories for awards may include, but are not limited to: diverse cast/representation, emerging filmmaker, kink/fetish, romance, short film, educational, straight, trans, Canadian content, lesbian/dyke/queer, and website.
