Note that the work by which artists should be judged is not limited to material published in fanzines; art in semiprozines or material on public displays (such as in convention art shows) is also eligible, as are media artists (sculptors, jewellers, 3-dimensional artists, etc) who produce work which can be considered related to science fiction or fantasy.
Fan artists can have work published in professional publications as well, but you should not consider such professionally-published works when judging this award.
