Australian Adult Industry Awards

In 2004, the organizers of the awards were persuaded to be a partner of the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) to get 16,000 sex workers of Australia to declare their income.[3] As part of the effort, the ATO decided to sponsor the event.[4]

John Lark won the lifetime achievement award in 2006 for his contribution to the industry as a producer of 20 films featuring Australian "stars", including Alice Springs and Kelly Blue, in late 1980s.[5]
