Since it’s inception the awards have always been fluid. Without locking ourselves into ‘must do’ we’ve been able to tailor and change the awards to fit with the times and the industry, from changes of names, to acceptance of sponsorship from different companies to adding or amending categories and changing of the venues.

We combined the ShemaleYum and Black-Tgirls Models of the Year into one fan voted, GroobyGirls Model of the Year for the last two years, mainly because it was hard to get enough people to participate in the voting process. And that’s where we are now.

All nominations* are closed for the judging categories for this year’s event and I thought it prudent to make a few comments before they’re released this week, both in an effort to inform and to manage expectations.
It’s tough. Really tough this year. There are so many nominees, for almost every category that the cut off just to be nominated is going to be higher than ever. This means established models who have appeared in the past nominations but may not have done the body of work or stood out this year, will be missed. It means newcomers … Read More
