HUMP!, the world's best dirty little film festival, got its start in Seattle thirteen years ago. Today HUMP! tours all over the USA and Canada—HUMP! will play in fifty cities in 2018—but only audiences in Seattle, Portland, and Olympia get to vote on the HUMP! Awards. HUMP!'s hometown audiences vote for their favorite films in four categories—Best Sex, Best Kink, Best Humor, Best In Show—awarding $15,000 in cash prizes directly to the filmmakers and performers. This was our best-attended HUMP! ever and we just finished counting 20,000 ballots. And the HUMP! Awards go to...
Best Sex ($2,000): The Alley
Best Sex Runner Up ($1,000): The Code
Best Kink ($2,000): Paramnesia
Best Kink Runner Up ($1,000): Dark Room
Best Humor ($2,000): A HUMP! Public Service Announcement
Best Humor Runner Up ($1,000): Dildrone
HUMP! Jury Award ($1,000): Bed Bugs
BEST IN SHOW ($5,000): Connection
