Note: Individual Award. An annual award for contributions to the field of science fiction dating back more than 30 years. Contributions can be as a fan, writer, editor, artist, agent, or any combination of the five. It is awarded by First Fandom and is usually presented at the beginning of the World Science Fiction Convention's Hugo Award ceremony. No award was given in 1965 or 1999. The First Fandom Home Page seems to be missing data about their award, both with several missing years and apparent missing awards for several other years. In general, we rely on the listing given in Wikipedia (with sources noted there). Discrepancies between these two sources are noted here:
- First Fandom does not list awards for C.M. Kornbluth and Mort Weisinger in 1995.
- First Fandom misspells the name of Phillip Nowlan (as "Nolan") for the 2003 award.
- First Fandom does not include the winners for 2014-2016.
