XBIZ Awards are given annually to honor "individuals, companies, performers and products that play an essential part in the growth and success of adult films" and have been described by XBIZ publisher and founder Alec Helmy as being "born out of the industry's desire for an awards event that not only encompasses all facets of the business but one which presents it in a professional light and honors it with class".

Organized by the adult industry trade magazine XBIZ, the awards were first given in 2003. The award nominations are submitted by clients, and the winners are voted for by XBIZ staff, industry colleagues and participating organizations. The awards were originally created to recognize achievement in the online adult industry, but, in recent years, video categories have been added.

The XBIZ Awards in the adult film industry have been compared to the Golden Globes in the mainstream film industry. The 2010 XBIZ Awards were held in at the Avalon in Hollywood.

As of 2014, the number of specific award categories has expanded over the years to include more than 150 award categories. The award winners listed below are mostly for major award categories, but a more comprehensive listing of past award winners may be found in the "External links" section.
