Fur Your Consideration.....
This twentyfirst annual Recommended Anthropomorphics List has two purposes. Firstly, it is open for all Furry fans to recommend what they
consider to be the best anthropomorphic movies, TV series, novels, artwork, games, etc. that they found first published during 2021. It is
for fans who want to know what anthropomorphic movies, TV series, novels, etc. others found to be worth looking for. The List is open to
anyone to add to, so if you know of any 2021 Furry movies or comic books or comic strips, etc. that you consider worth recommending, please send
your recommendations to:
The ALAA reserves the right to exclude from the Recommended Anthropomorphics List, and from contention for an Ursa Major Award, any
works it deems to be obscene, libelous, illegal, or otherwise detrimental to the integrity and good standing of the Ursa Major Awards
and the anthropomorphics fandom that those awards represent.
All recommendations for 2021 must be received by midnight PST, January 10, 2022.
It would be greatly appreciated if you are able to provide weblinks to your recommendations so that we can correctly add them to the list.
The second purpose is to serve as a guide to which items were produced in 2021, to help fans determine what is eligible to nominate for the year's Ursa Major Awards (to be voted upon in 2022). Note: Recommendation of items to this list does not constitute nomination for the awards, nor is it a requirement for nomination! Nominations may not be made until January 2022 - check the Nominations page for instructions.
The dividing line in size between Novel and Short Fiction is 40,000 words.
The "Other Literary Work" category is for any literary work that does not fit into the existing written categories, including but
not limited to such things as short story and comic strip collections, and graphic novels.
The Published Illustration category is intended for single illustrations only. When multiple illustrations exist in the same
story/book be careful to identify exactly which illustration you mean. Should you wish to recommend an artist of several illustrations in the
same story, none of which stands out above the other, cite the title page or other first illustration.
Recommended Anthropomorphic Miscellany is not matched by a similar category in the Ursa Major Awards. Recommended Miscellany is for those
items like the Realm of the Claw action figures that appeared awhile back, or the Cthulhu plush dolls that do not fit into any of the
existing categories, but are too good to be ignored.
Fursuit performances qualify under "Dramatic Short Work or Series", preferably in recorded form, or as performances which will be repeated.
Fursuit is an Award category with special requirements. Due to the difficulties with administering this category, we will have to ask for extra information and other requirements to accept them into this category. To submit them to the Recommended List we require ALL of the following:
- Fursuit name
- Fursuit's maker
- Fursuit's owner/player (if not the maker)
- Good quality photograph taken during the eligible year (2020 at present) with permission to publish it if it is not already available on line.
- Date photograph taken
- Venue at which the photograph was taken. NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic shutting down conventions and furmeets, online presentations will be accepted this year.
If all details are correctly supplied, the fursuit will be eligible for an Ursa Major Award for that year only. ALL fursuits are eligible for the Recommended List and as a candidate for an Award for ONE YEAR ONLY. When Award nominations are opened in January, all nominees for the Fursuit category must be chosen from those on the Recommended List for the eligible year. The Ursa Major Award will be given to the fursuit maker, not the wearer/performer. Photographs will be published on this website for consideration by the public. You must have the rights to that photo and grant us permission to show it. NOTE: An Award will only be presented if there are sufficient recommendations to proceed with it.
This Recommended List is posted at https://ursamajorawards.org/. This website includes links to as many as possible of the recommended
items that have their own entries on the Internet; so if you want to know more about any of them, you can go right to its site.
