The Ursa Major Awards are intended to be the furry fandom equivalent to the science fiction fandom's Hugo awards, for outstanding achievement in anthropomorphic and furry arts. The awards were first presented in 2001 at ConFurence 12. With the demise of ConFurence in 2003, it was decided that the awards would be presented at as many furry conventions as possible. To that end, the UMA's were presented at C-ACE in 2004 and at Anthrocon in 2005.
Winners include Usagi Yojimbo

A Doemain of Our Own has been drawn by SusanDeer since 24 April 1999. The comic covers the life of a doe writer named Sue Hartland, the strange adventures she finds herself in, and her hectic social life.
In the beginning, the plot dealt with Sue's romantic life with her husband. Real life issues invaded the strip, and the character of Eric was written out in late 2004, leaving Susan single. She has recently been dating a tiger named Bennie. Other regulars include characters from Vinci & Arty and Sue's non-anthro pet cats, Gwynn and Ginger.
The collection A Doemain of Our Own, Vol. 1
won the 2006 Ursa Major Award
for Best Anthropomorphic Other Literary Work
