(Hollywood, CA) – The X-Rated Critics Organization is proud to announce the addition of a new award category for the 2012 XRCO Awards Show. Beginning next year, the XRCO will add an award for the “Best 3D Release.”

“Our industry is always changing,” says XRCO’s Dirty Bob. “Adding an award for the best 3D release is something we knew we needed to do. Some of the most interesting features offered by the adult film industry are coming out in 3D. Keeping up with technology and recognizing those who use it well is part of what makes the XRCO so special. I can’t wait to see the best efforts from this category.”

The number of 3D adult features has increased greatly over the past two years and some of the biggest movies are now taking advantage of the new technology. Last year’s “This Ain’t Avatar XXX” from director Axel Braun and Hustler Video was just one of the impressive 3D titles that hastened the addition of the new category.

Earlier this year, the XRCO became the first adult awards show to add a “Best Parody: Comic” to recognize the quality releases based on comic book and super hero characters. XRCO now features three parodies categories covering comedy, drama and comics.

Both “Best 3D Release” and “Best Parody: Comic” will be added to the 28th Annual XRCO Awards Show in spring of next year.

XRCO thanks it’s 2011 Awards Show sponsors Adam & Eve, Deep Throat Energy Drink, Evil Angel, IAFD.com, Wicked Pictures and X Play.
