ALAA Hall of Fame
Fur Your Consideration.....
(Last Update August 9, 2015)
This fifteenth 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 2015. 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 2015 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 2015 must be received by January 15, 2016.
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 2015, to help fans determine what is eligible to nominate
for the year's Ursa Major Awards (to be voted upon in 2016). 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 2016 - check the Nominations page for instructions.
Fursuit performances qualify under "Dramatic Short Work or Series",
preferably in recorded form, or as performances which will be repeated.
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,
graphic novels, and non-fiction.
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.
This Recommended List is posted at http://www.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.
