THE X-AWARDS 2017
The X-Awards aim to place the public focus on people, companies and organizations that have contributed to the development and prosperity of the European gay fetish scene. Through the X-Awards we aim to create a dynamic that contributes to a better future for gay fetish enthusiasts in Europe. We wants to help remove the stigma surrounding fetish and work towards tolerance and acceptance within society.
For the fourth edition of the X-Awards, a lot of changes have been made to the structure, nomination process and scoring system. For the first time, the public will be able to suggest nominees. A large committee of key persons in the scene will then create a short list. During December and January, the public can once again cast their vote for the shortlisted nominees.
The winners will be announced during the X-Awards at Darklands.
