2. What is the criteria for being nominated for Overall Entertainer of the Year?

Beginning in 2014, with the inception of the EDI (Exotic Dancer Invitational) East and West contests, winners of each contest (Showgirl Division & Champion Division) received automatic nominations for two of the ED’s Overall Entertainer of the Year slots. That leaves the rest of the Entertainer of the Year nominees to be decided in part by the pre-nominations voting process, in part by input from ED Publications staff and other industry professionals. Notes: To be nominated for ED’s Entertainer of the Year, you MUST be able to be booked in the United States as a feature entertainer (and preferably have had multiple U.S. feature bookings from June 2018-June 2019). You also MUST appear in person to perform and possibly accept the award on stage at the Annual ED’s Awards Show if you are nominated for Overall Entertainer of the Year.
