Ursa Major Awards
The Ursa Major Awards are intended to be the furry fandom award for outstanding achievement in anthropomorphic and furry arts, equivalent to the science fiction fandom's Hugo Awards. The awards were first presented in 2001 at ConFurence 12. With the demise of ConFurence in 2003, it was decided that the awards would be presented at as many furry conventions as possible....
The UMA trophy consists of a framed certificate containing the Awards' illustrated logo designed by Heather Bruton, with the name of the winner....
To be eligible, a work must have been released between January 1 and December 31 of the calendar year for that award, and must include a non-human being given human attributes (anthropomorphic), which can be mental and/or physical (for example the intelligent rabbits in Watership Down for the former, and Bugs Bunny for the latter.)
