An award given by the First Fandom club since 1963 for contributions to the field of science fiction. Recipients must have contributed to fandom for 30 years or more. The award was formerly presented before the presentation of the Hugo Awards at Worldcon, but more recently is merely announced at opening ceremonies.

First Fandom presents three awards on an annual basis: Hall of Fame, Hall of Fame (Posthumous), and the Sam Moskowitz Archive Award. All award winners are determined by a vote of the members of the First Fandom club.

The Posthumous Hall of Fame award was established as a separate and equal award with unique criteria in 1994 at Rivercon XIX.
