STUDIO CITY, Calif. - Giana Taylor is seeking sponsors and presenters for the 2009 Urban X Awards, to be held June 18 at an as-yet undetermined Los Angeles venue.

Launched in 2008 as the Urban Spice Awards, the Urban X Awards recognize outstanding achievement in ethnic adult video. Acclaimed performers Roxy Reynolds and Mr. Marcus will co-host this year's show, with Black Market Entertainment returning as a principal sponsor.

"Last year's show was a huge success, and this year will be even better," Taylor told AVN. "Black Market has believed in our vision from the first day it was brought to their attention. I would like to give a special thanks to James, Jodi, and everyone else at Black Market for their support."

To get involved, e-mail Taylor at info@urbanxawards.com, or call (818) 917-3608 to request a kit with sponsorship rates and further details on the show.

A website with complete event information is set to launch Jan. 30 at www.urbanxawards.com.
