In a ceremony hosted by Luci van Org (Singer of the Band Übermutter and Mistress of the first German Fetish Ball back in 2004), the European Fetish Awards were awared to the winners for the first, but surely not the last time. Along with a good number of nominees, two of the winners were able to join the ceremony at the Matrix on Sunday, May 11th in Berlin. We gratulate all of them and totally agree with the jury, that the prices are well deserved and each of the winners made an outstanding performance and has a place in the heart of the fetish community. Congratulations to all!

The Nominations 2008

 

Best Fetish Fashion Design 2008

Have you been to a party recently? The chances are good that you saw some awesome designs never seen before. But ask the big brands what brings the profit and they will tell you that this are the basics and classical pieces. So any designer determined to create something new, should be honoured, since they enrich the scene, what would be a party or a fetish photo without those great new designs? The best fashion design award shall at least be a pat on the shoulder to those who shoulder the risks of a new collection.

 

 

Best Startup 2008

What would the scene be without all the new companies, bringing fresh air into our scene? Still we know how few of them really flourish, sadly most come and go or just vegetate as an online presence who sells from time to time some goods. But it is a great challenge to risk such a venture and a lot of heart and soul is committed to such a project. So that is why we want to honour the startup fetish/bdsm company of the past one and a half years. They shall prosper!

 

 

Best Publicity Campaign 2008

Remember all those black websites with lit, flickering candles? Or those magazine ads straight out of a typewriter? Times have changed and those that make much more out of their publicity, deserve a prize! Publicity and Advertising give our scene a look, the fashion photos in the new catalogs, the fresh look of stylish websites and the great new ads of course too. They play a big part when it comes to how our scene looks. We shall award those that put effort and money into a great campaign.

* Not on the nomination list are those proposed that are members of the jury or the founders of this Awards.

 

 

Special Award 2008

Our scene is to colorful to have an award for every category, much is up to taste and sometimes we like to award people, for plenty of reasons but without a single cause. The special award pays a tribute to this. Be it someones lifework, be it a special achievement... this is the category to honour those special people. Maybe an outsider that throws a bright and gentle light onto our scene? Maybe someone who passed away in the last 12 month and shall not be forgoten? Who knows...
