WebsiteBSFA Awards

The BSFA Awards are given every year by the British Science Fiction Association. The BSFA Award for Best Artwork is open to any artwork with speculative themes that first appeared in the previous year. Provided the artwork hasn't been published before it doesn't matter where it appears. The ceremonies are named after the year that the eligible works were published, despite the awards being given out in the next year.

Prior to 1986 the award was presented for best artist, rather than artwork. Jim Burns won three of the seven Best Artist awards. He went on to win eleven Best Artwork awards.
