Best Professional Magazine Hugo

In one form or another this is one of only two categories which has endured for the entire length of the Hugos. The category was one of the original seven Hugo categories under the name "Best Professional Magazine" with the exception of the first foreign Worldcon, Loncon I in 1957, which had two best magazine awards, Best American Professional Magazine and Best British Professional Magazine.

In 1973, the title of the category changed to become the Best Professional Editor Hugo category, in order to recognize the editor more than the magazine, but nothing substantially changed. In 2006, the category split into the Best Editor, Short Form (magazines and anthologies) and Best Editor, Long Form (novels).
