Official website worldfantasy.org/awards/

The World Fantasy Awards are given each year by the World Fantasy Convention for the best fantasy fiction and art published during the preceding calendar year. The awards have been described by sources such as The Guardian as a "prestigious fantasy prize",[1] and one of the three most renowned speculative fiction awards, along with the Hugo and Nebula Awards (which cover both fantasy and science fiction).[2][3] The World Fantasy Award for Best Artist is given each year to artists of works related to fantasy released in the preceding calendar year. Fantasy artists are also eligible for the special award for professionals category. The World Fantasy Award for Best Artist has been awarded annually since 1975.[4]

World Fantasy Award nominees and winners are decided by attendees and judges at the annual World Fantasy Convention. A ballot is posted in June for attendees of the current and previous two conferences to determine two of the finalists, and a panel of five judges adds three or more nominees before voting on the overall winner.[4][5] The panel of judges is typically made up of fantasy authors[6] and is chosen each year by the World Fantasy Awards Administration, which has the power to break ties.[4] The final results are presented at the World Fantasy Convention at the end of October.[5] Winners are presented with a statue in the form of a bust of H. P. Lovecraft.[1]

During the 41 nomination years, 82 artists have been nominated; 34 of them have won, including ties. Three artists have won three times: Shaun Tan, out of four nominations; Charles Vess, out of five; and Michael Whelan, out of nine. Four other artists have won twice: Thomas Canty, out of nine nominations; Lee Brown Coye, both times he was nominated; Edward Gorey, out of four; and J. K. Potter, out of ten. No other artists have won more than once. Potter and John Picacio have received the most nominations at ten, followed by Canty, Don Maitz, and Whelan at nine each. Stephen Fabian and John Jude Palencar are tied at eight for the most nominations without winning.

In the following table, the years correspond to the date of the ceremony, rather than when the artist's work was published. Entries with a blue background and an asterisk (*) next to the artist's name have won the award; those with a white background are the other nominees on the shortlist.
