An award given out by the First Fandom club since 1963 for contributions to the field of science fiction. Recipients must have made a contribution for 30 years or more to fandom. The award was formerly presented at Worldcon before the presentation of the Hugo Awards, 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.
