Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists

The Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists (ASFA) is a non-profit, educational association, whose membership is made up of amateur and professional artists, art directors, art show managers, publishers, and collectors involved in the visual arts of SF, fantasy, mythology, and related topics.

ASFA's purpose is to encourage and develop amateur artistic talent, educate the public, publishers, patrons of the arts and anyone interested in works of these particularly types of art and craftsmanship in the rights, needs, and problems of the people involved in the creation of this material.

Each year ASFA gives out the Chesley Awards, named for the famous astronomical artist, Chesley Bonestell. The Chesleys were started in 1985 as a means for the SF and fantasy art community to recognize individual works and achievements during the previous year. (IA) Website
