Hugo Award
The Hugo Awards have been in existence since 1953 and are among the most prominent awards given out for works of Science Fiction and Fantasy (the other most known one being the Nebula Award). The name comes from Hugo Gernsback, the magazine editor who founded Amazing Stories magazine back in 1926 and was influential in bringing the sci-fi genre to popularity.

Contenders for a Hugo are nominated and voted on by the World Science Fiction Society, whose paid membership is open to the general public. The current award categories include Best written works (novel, novella, novelette, short story), long and short form "Dramatic Presentation" (which includes "film, television, radio, live theater, computer games or music"), anthology and magazine editors, professional artist, Best Graphic Story (added in 2009) and categories for Fan-Art, fanzines and fan writing (including Fan Fic but also nonfiction essays and books about other works).

The Japanese equivalent to the Hugo Award is the Seiun Award.
