Note: Multi-Category Award. Given each year by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) for the best science fiction/fantasy fiction published in the United States. As awards presented by professionals to professionals, they have been called the Oscars of the SF/F field. They were created in the mid-1960s, by the newly formed Science Fiction Writers of America, as the basis for annual anthologies that would contribute to the income of the organization. Note that the "Andre Norton Award" and the "Ray Bradbury Award" are awarded at the same time, although they aren't strictly Nebulas and are listed as separate award types by ISFDB. The Solstice Award, created in 2009 and given at the discretion of the SFWA president with the majority approval of the Board of Directors, is for individuals who have had "a significant impact on the science fiction or fantasy landscape".
