Girlsway Crowns April O'Neil as 2017 Girl of the Year

MONTREAL—Girlsway Network announced today that April O'Neil has been annointed its Girlsway Girl of the Year for 2017.

"I'm a Girlsway Girl of the Year, that just blows my mind," O'Neil said. "Thank you to Bree Mills, Stills by Alan, the entire Girlsway team ... and, of course, the fans!"

O'Neil is the third annual Girlsway Girl of the Year, following 2016's Jelena Jensen and 2015's Shyla Jennings. The all-girl site tallied fan votes to determine the top performer among its Girls of the Month from the year, including Bree Daniels, Uma Jolie, Alexis Fawx, Angela White, Kristen Scott, AJ Applegate, Georgia Jones, Brett Rossi, Penny Pax, Keisha Grey and Melissa Moore.

"A very hearty congratulations to April for taking the title this year, and a big thank you to the fans that voted," said studio chief Bree Mills, who also serves as head of production for parent company Gamma Films. "The rankings for Girl of the Year were closer than ever before, as we saw more shifting in the top three than previous years.

"April has been with us performing on since before was first launched," Mills continued. "She, not surprisingly, placed first in both member and non-member polls, which means she is truly deserving of the title of Girl of the Year. She represents our ideal GOTM and GOTY. A truly talented and adored lesbian performer."

As Girlsway Girl of the Year, O'Neil will receive a cash prize of $5,000 and prominent placement in the company's ads. Georgia Jones took second place, earning a prize of $2,500, and Melissa Moore came in third, earning $1,500.

O'Neil will be representing Girlsway on the showroom floor of the 2018 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo kicking off January 24 at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The Girlsway booth is #1710, and O'Neil will appear there from 4 to 8 p.m. January 24 & 25, and 12-4 p.m. January 27.
