The BSFA Awards are given every year by the British Science Fiction Association. The BSFA Award for Best Artwork is open to any single science fictional or fantastic image that first appeared in the previous year. Provided the artwork hasn't been published before it doesn't matter where it appears.

Prior to 1995 the award was present for best artist, rather than artwork. Jim Burns won eight of the sixteen Best Artist awards. He went on to win four Best Artwork awards.
