HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - The X-Rated Critics Organization will hold its 25th annual awards show April 16 at the Hollywood Highlands.

The XRCO Awards honor outstanding achievement in more than 20 categories. The winners are determined by the organization's panel of 40 professional adult movie reviewers.

First held on February 14, 1985, the industry-only awards show is traditionally "a relaxed, low-key affair, more like a big party than a formal presentation." This year's gala promises to be the best in the XRCO's quarter-century history, with "tons of star power and plenty of surprises".   

Sponsorships are now available. Last year's XRCO sponsors included Wicked Pictures, Hot Movies, Nightmoves Magazine and Pink Visual.
