The 2010 Ursa Major Awards was an awards ceremony for the best of anthropomorphically-oriented media published throughout 2010. The winners were announced at Morphicon 2011 in Columbus, Ohio on May 13, 2011.

Nominations for the 2010 Ursa Major Awards were opened from February 2 to 28, 2011, and voting for the nominations ran from March 13 to April 27[1]. Nominators could suggest up to five works in each category.


[edit] Location

The 2010 Awards ceremony marks the first time in the ceremony's history since Confurence 2003 (where the event was held from 2001-2003) that it has been held at a previously-used convention location, as the 2007 ceremony was held at Morphicon 2008.

The awards ceremony is typically held at a different convention in a different region of North America each May, but five conventions then scheduled for May-June 2011 - Anthrocon, Rocket City Fur Meet, Califur, Morphicon and FA: United - have hosted the Ursa Major Awards ceremony in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010 respectively. This increased the likelihood of the ceremony either:

  • being held again at one of the aforementioned venues
  • being held again at a non-furry convention, such as DucKon
  • being held at a later time of the year.
