The BSFA Awards are presented annually by the British Science Fiction Association, based on a vote of BSFA members and – in recent years – members of the British national science fiction convention Eastercon. They are fan awards that not only seek to honour the most worthy examples in each category, but also to promote the genre of science fiction, and get people reading, talking about, and enjoying all that contemporary science fiction has to offer.
The Best Novel award is open to any novel-length work of science fiction or fantasy (over 40,000 words) first published in the year of eligibility.
The Best Short Fiction award is open to any shorter work of science fiction or fantasy, up to and including novellas (40,000 words or under), first published in the year of eligibility (in a magazine, in a book, in audio format, or any electronic or web-based format).
The Best Non-Fiction award is open to any written work about science fiction and/or fantasy which appeared in its current form in the year of eligibility. Whole collections comprised entirely of unrevised work that has been published elsewhere previous to the year of eligibility are ineligible.
The Best Fiction for Younger Readers award is open to any work of science fiction and/or fantasy aimed predominantly at younger readers, first published in the year of eligibility. This includes Children's Literature, Middle Grade, and Young Adult.
