TORONTO — Good for Her announced that the official nomination period for the 7th annual Feminist Porn Awards will be closing on Feb. 17.

The Feminist Porn Awards honor pornographers whose work offers a fresh perspective on the sexual expression of women and other adult industry members who finds themselves under-represented in mainstream pornography.

The company said in order to be considered for a Feminist Porn Award, submissions must meet at least one of the following criteria:

Categories for awards may include, but are not limited to: Canadian content, lesbian/dyke, diverse cast/representation, emerging filmmaker, kink/fetish, lesbian/dyke, straight, trans and website.
