(Did you mean the John W. Campbell, Jr. Memorial Award?)
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.
This award has no connection to the juried John W. Campbell Memorial Award except that both are named for Campbell.
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.
