The Campbell Award (in full, the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer) was established in 1973 by Conde Nast, the publisher of Analog, upon the death of seminal editor John W. Campbell. It honors the best new writer whose first professional SF sale was within the previous two years.

The Campbell is the only non-Hugo Award which is permitted to be voted on on the Hugo ballot and it is presented annually with the Hugos at Worldcon.

This award has no connection to the juried John W. Campbell Memorial Award except that both are named for Campbell.

See Campbell Award rules for a detailed discussion of the rules. See also the Hugo Awards and List of Hugo categories.

In 2019 it was renamed the Astounding Award (in full The Astounding Award for Best New Writer) after Campbell's politics were denounced at the Hugo Awards ceremony by that year's winner, Jeannette Ng.
