The Manly Wade Wellman Award was founded to recognize outstanding achievement in science fiction and fantasy novels written by North Carolina authors.

Nominations opened at illogiCon in January ahead of a final voting round between ConCarolinas and ConTemporal, with the award presented at ConGregate in July.
The award is named for long-time North Carolina author Manly Wade Wellman with the permission of his estate.
