The ManyVids Annual Awards Return January 13-23

ManyVids is once again putting on their annual award competition where models can enter various categories and receive free and paid votes from their fans in order to place in the top 5 in their category which sends them to the nominations where ultimately the winner is decided by the ManyVids team. While the categories haven’t been announced officially yet within a blog post by the ManyVids team, the contest page is already active and the entries are flooding in.

Notable categories left out this year

Social media is buzzing with performers that are missing the categories from previous years, some of the most talked about categories that won’t be part of the MV Awards this year include:

  • MV Bush of the Year
  • MV Anal Star of the Year
  • MV Domme of the Year
  • MV Producer Vid and MV Vid of the Year
  • MV Submissive of the Year
  • MV Duo of the Year
  • MV Trendsetter of the Year

In previous years, the focus seemed to be slightly geared more toward the content posted on the platform. For example: in 2020 we had “MV Girl Vid of the Year,” “MV Boy Vid of the Year,” and “MV Trans Vid of the Year,” which rewarded performers for posting content that performed well on ManyVids but was also diverse so that men and trans performers wouldn’t be excluded, unfortunately they condensed those categories in 2021 to “MV Vid of the Year,” and “MV Trans Vid of the Year” which put male and female performers in competition for the best performing video (which most often goes to the women because there is a higher saturation of women on ManyVids.) In 2022, they have now condensed what used to be 3 diverse categories into one category “MV Vid of the Year” which is going to further alienate and exclude male and trans performers from visibility and award potential because of the oversaturation of women on the platform.

In addition to the condensing of important categories that were great for bringing traffic and visibility to male and trans performers, ManyVids also appears to be condensing their fetish performance categories as well. There used to be many more categories to highlight kink/BDSM performers, while now they are being condensed down into the one category they have left which is “MV Fetish Star of the Year.”

So, why is ManyVids doing this? ManyVids appears to be squishing performers into less diverse categories in an effort to only reward their top performers. Every category in the 2022 MV Awards is something that a “top performer” would likely enter, and in doing so, would place higher in than smaller name performers. The diverse categories from years past provided an opportunity for performers that may not have huge followings and whale tippers to still place within the top 5 and potentially win an award, but with the new condensed “star studded” categories, it seems like smaller name performers are being boxed out intentionally.

Performers are very unhappy with the continued contest while site features continue to not work, if you want to support these performers there is a Fair Payout Percentage on Contests and Prioritize Repair of Integral Site Features petition started by Aerie Saunders on
