Every year, the Hugo Award for Best Fanzineis given by the World Science Fiction Society to a fanzine.

The award is named after Hugo Gernsback, the founder of Amazing Stories, the pioneering science fiction 'pulp' magazine in whose letter column many of the first science fiction fans met one another.

The award was initiated in 1955 and has been given out ever year except for 1958. A fanzine must meet two of the five criteria for being deemed a fanzine: that it has a press run of less than one thousand copies; had less than fifteen percent of its pages devoted to advertising; has not paid it's staff or contributors in anything other than copies of the publication; and is not the source of half of the income for an editor; announces itself as a fanzine. The awards are chosen by antendees of the World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon). The award for 'Best Fanzine' is the oldest Hugo Award for fan activity.
