Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Hugo Award for Best Fanzine is given annually to fanzines. These are amateur magazines for science fiction/fantasy-related subject, which do not pay their contributors. Fanzines are generally produced out of the love of the genre, its authors, books and films. Historically, fanzines were produced by inexpensive copying processes such as mimeography, and obtained from the editor by contributing articles, artwork or letters or comment, trading for other fanzines, or the like. More recently fanzines have been published electronically, but they have always served as forums for commentary within the genre community.

Definition of eligibility

For the purposes of the Hugo Award, a fanzine, according to Article 3.3.11 of the constitution of the World Science Fiction Society, is "Any generally available non-professional publication devoted to science fiction, fantasy, or related subjects which by the close of the previous calendar year has published four (4) or more issues, at least one (1) of which appeared in the previous calendar year, and which does not qualify as a semiprozine."

The terminology associated with this award has mutated over the years. It was for "Best Fan Magazine" in 1956–57 and for "Best Amateur Magazine" in 1959, 1963–64, 1966, 1972–75, 1977–78. This is the oldest long-running Hugo award for fan activity; in 1967 Hugo Awards were added specifically for fan writing and fan art.
