(The Award is for work done in 2012, even though it was presented in 2013.)
A few weeks ago I was honored with the Chesley Award for Best Magazine Cover Illustration! The 2013 Chesley Awards were announced by ASFA and presented at the 71th World Science Fiction Convention in San Antonio. It's a beautiful award, I'm very honored and grateful! I would like to thank Neil Clarke and the whole ASFA people. Thank you very much!!
About the Chesley Awards
ASFA annually gives out the Chesley Awards, which were established in 1985 as ASFA's peer awards to recognize individual works and achievements not otherwise recognized by the Hugo Awards, during a given year. The Chesleys were initially called the ASFA Awards, but were later renamed to honor famed astronomical artist Chesley Bonestell after his death in 1986. The awards are usually presented annually at the World Science Fiction Convention or at the North American Science Fiction Convention when the Worldcon is held outside of North America.
The Chesleys have long been internationally acclaimed as the most prestigious awards in the field of fantastic arts. These awards are nominated and decided upon by the members of our community, the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists.
