Award Listings

This Wiki page supports the ISFDB Award Directory, which has a list of all the awards currently in the database. The table below has a link to individual awards and indicates the current status of incorporating them into the ISFDB. Awards are listed in alphabetical order; when the award is named after an individual, this order uses the last name of that individual.

Note that of the many awards given, some are published as for the year in which they are awarded, and some are published as for the year of eligibility of the works being evaluated. For consistency, we always list awards for the year of eligibility. This means that we may list "The XYZ Award - 2010" while Locus or the XYZ awarding group calls it "The XYZ Award - 2011". Our policy, in addition to this basic consistency, makes it more likely that a title receiving multiple awards has them listed for the same year, and makes it much easier to handle cases where an organization "catches up" on back awards by announcing 2 years of awards during one calendar year.
