The rivalry between Ava Zinn and Tracia Ward is a moderator derby between inter-team rivalry serving as moderators on the UK version of Vote for the Girls and is spawned on the rivalry of the same name in the United States.

Since the second series of Vote for the Girls, it is an inter-league woman vs. transwoman matchup between the two moderators. Thus, a Zinn-Ward moderator match-up can be referred to as "Fort Wayne and Indy vs. Michiana in the UK" or The All-Indiana Super Bowl in the UK (referencing the Super Bowl XLI matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears due to both Zinn and Ward supporting both NFL teams).



The Ava Zinn and Tracia Ward rivalry has been considered an important derby, especially evident during the twelfth series of Strictly Come Dancing (a make-up competition for the web site following the site's very first loss on the third series of The Voice UK) when Zinn's supported contestants of eventual winner Caroline Flack & Pasha Kovalev, runner-up Frankie Bridge & Kevin Clifton, and fourth place contestant Mark Wright & Karen Hauer and Ward's final supported contestant finished fifth place in Week 12, Tracia Ward no longer have any remaining picks on her team following the elimination of Jake Wood and Janette Manrara. Additionally, that elimination resulted in an two transgender females (Zinn and Ray) in the Strictly final.
