PRAGUE—The 2011 YNOT Awards winners were announced last Wednesday at a gala ceremony inside Prague’s swanky SaSaZu during which 20 companies and individuals were named “Best of the Best” by their professional peers.
“The inaugural YNOT Awards were a labor of love for us,” said Connor Young, president of parent company, YNOT Group LLC. “We’ve long felt industry members who actively work with others in the industry know who the truly outstanding people and companies are—the ones that go the extra mile in their business dealings and other interactions. So, instead of leaving the awards in the hands of ‘experts,’ we asked the industry to make its own decisions. We were surprised and pleased with the truly international slate of winners that resulted.
“Of course, there really are no losers,” Young added. “All the nominees were put forward by the industry, and every one of them deserves recognition. I need to give special thanks to the evening’s sponsors, without whose generosity none of this would have been possible.
“Saboom.com, DatingFactory, Webbilling, SexGoesMobile, PornHub, Brazzers and Mojo Host sponsored the ceremony, and Brazzers and PornHub underwrote a performance by the fabulous Beatles cover group Brouci Band. Many thanks to all of them," concluded Young.
