2017 TEA Fan Choice Award Voting Begins Now


Los Angeles, CA – Voting has now begun for the coveted 2017 TEA Fan Choice Award sponsored by CameraPrive. Previous winners from recent years include Kylie Maria, Aubrey Kate, Khloe Hart, and Jane Marie. Voting closes on February 1, 2017.

“The Fan Choice Award is one of the most exciting and interesting because it’s simply so unpredictable,” said Steven Grooby. “Because we allow votes only from websites, forums, or social media people (and we have people screen them), it’s not a vote for a winner based on clicks, but a winner based on genuine votes from genuine fans.”

Fans can vote directly at http://www.theteashow.com/fan-voting and are only allowed to vote once. Incomplete and spam forms will be disqualified from inclusion and fans must include their website, forum, or social media handle in order for their vote to count.

Companies and performers interested in sponsoring can email kristel@grooby.com directly.

The TEAs (also known as the Transgender Erotica Awards), now in its ninth year, celebrates the accomplishments of the trans adult industry and its performers. From its humble beginnings as an online competition started by Grooby, the TEAs are now a three-day event that includes a pre-party, fan convention, and awards program.

The 2017 TEAs will be hosted by viral sensation and TEA Lifetime Achievement winner TS Madison at the Avalon in Hollywood. The pre-party will be held on March 3 at the Bardot, the fan convention will be held on March 4 at the Avalon, and the awards will be held at the Avalon on March 5.  The Avalon and its connecting property, the Bardot, are located at 1735 Vine St, Los Angeles, CA 90028. Discounted pre-sale tickets are available for purchase at theTEAShow.com.

2017 TEA Nominations Announced at theTEAShow.com

nominees-announced

Los Angeles, CA – The 2017 TEA nominations were officially announced today at theTEAShow.com. The winners will be announced during the awards show on Sunday, March 5. 2017 at the Avalon in Hollywood. The awards bookend a weekend of events, which kicks off with a pre-party on Friday and day time fan convention on Saturday.

“It seems to get more difficult by the year coming up with shortlists for each category,” said Steven Grooby. “There are so many models working in both solo and hardcore model categories that many don’t get added. In addition to the fan submitted pre-nominations, we look for models who have worked with either a wide range of companies, or have an exceptional body of work each year.  With three first timers appearing in Best Hardcore Model, could a newcomer steal the crown? Our panel of judges have a particularly hard job this year and I can’t wait to see the results.”

Not all categories are voted on by a panel of judges, but all are announced on stage during the awards program, including the coveted Fan Choice Award, the Transcendence Award, Best Industry Professional, Shemale Strokers’ Stroker of the Year, Kink’s Kinkiest T-Girl Domme, Bob’s TGirls Model of the Year, and Grooby Girl of the Year. A full list of nominees and categories can be found at theTEAShow.com along with additional information about the star studded three-day event.

In Preparation of What’s Ahead

tea-nominees

As Steven  mentioned in a previous post here, the process of tallying up the pre-nomination votes are not as simple as it seems. Not only do we have to tally and sort through hundreds of votes, we then have to verify that these submissions fit the criteria of our nomination period (in particular for categories like Best Scene, Best FTM Scene, Best DVD, and Best New Face).


Then comes the next big task – organizing the content for our panel of judges to review. It takes us days to do this because we want to ensure our judges have ample content to make their decisions and it takes a bit to compile everything in a way that’s organized – whether it’s direct links to nominated scenes or noteworthy scenes from nominated performers.

In preparation of announcing our nominees (which will be happening, VERY, VERY soon), we wanted to prep all nominees on the next part of process:

This is extremely important to read if you want our judges to be able to consider you in your nominated categories. We work very hard to ensure our judges have ample content to sift through to make educated choices for each category and give them notes on what to look for so everyone is on the same page. We also employ a diverse group of producers, industry folks, performers, and fans to judge.

If your DVD is available for streaming on TEA sponsored site Gamelink, perfect. They are being kind enough to offer access to nominated content on their site for our judges. However, if your title isn’t listed there, we’ll need some other way for our judges to view it online. Unfortunately we cannot receive physical copies of DVDs because 1) our judges are located around the world, and 2) it would take too long to send to them in a timely manner and it would be too expensive.

If you operate a nominated solo site, we will need (5) 1-month passes to your website. You can email them directly to me at kristel@grooby.com. This is imperative for the Best Solo Site category (for obvious reason) and for performers nominated in categories like Best Solo Model, Best Hardcore Model, Miss Unique, and our Best International Model categories.

As always, Grooby provides memberships to our sites for our judges, as does larger companies like Shemale Strokers, Bob’s TGirls, and UP Network. We please ask that other companies where nominated performers are featured do the same.
(note: GroobyNetwork sites run through ModelCentro will need passes generated by the performer)

Nominated Photographers, please submit (10) pictures of your work from this past TEA season (Nov 2015-present) to kristel@grooby.com for judges’ consideration.

Let’s make the 2017 TEAs our most successful yet! We want all of your nominees to be properly considered for their categories and we can’t do it without you.
