Welcome to the 2nd Annual POZ Awards, which spotlight the best representations of HIV/AIDS in media and culture.

The POZ editorial staff selects the nominees, but POZ readers choose the winners.

Eligible nominees were active or were presented, published or produced between October 1, 2016, and September 30, 2017.

Be sure to vote for your favorite nominees by the World AIDS Day deadline: Friday, December 1, 2017.

Here are the nominees:

The PrEP Project

This frank and funny series from filmmaker Chris Tipton-King enlivens PrEP education with frank talk (and NSFW-ish scenes) about condomless sex.

Daddyhunt: The Serial (Season Two)

This commendable series produced by the dating app Daddyhunt addresses HIV prevention and cross-generational relationships.


German documentarian Nicholas Feustel eyes the progress of PrEP in London and profiles the advocates demanding access to it in a film commissioned by the London-based PrEPster campaign.
