The awards are selected through a two-stage process of nomination and voting. Members of the public send in up to five nominations in each of the ten categories. The top nominations in each category are then presented for a public vote.
Many nominations are likely to come from the Recommended Anthropomorphics List, which has been built up through prior suggestions; however, inclusion on the list is not necessary nor sufficient for a work to be nominated.
Nominations close on February 28, and will be tallied between March 1 and March 14. The final ballot will be announced on March 15 and voting will take place until April 20. All those who sent in nominations will receive ballots; those who did not nominate but wish to vote may request one.
The awards are sponsored by the Anthropomorphic Literature and Arts Association, which has expanded its board of directors to include representatives from the world's largest furry conventions over the course of 2007.
