Leo Awards

The Leo Awards are an annual award program for anthropomorphic literature, started by furry publisher Thurston Howl Publications in 2018. The awards are administered by their Furry Book Review program.

Nominators must be authors of furry books, two short stories, or three poems, or the editor of an anthology of furry stories, during the past five years, or be one of the Furry Book Review’s reviewers. The winners will be those works chosen by at least 2/3 of an FBR panel of five to ten author judges. The goal of the Leo Awards is to publicly recommend all of the furry works worth reading in each category every year, not just the single best. The nominees will be considered for literary merit, and those that are approved of having such merit will be declared Leo Award winners; thus it is possible to have multiple award winners in each category.

Winners are announced at Anthrocon, and receive a stuffed lion and a certificate.
