The Aurealis Awards have a significant history behind them now. Since the Awards’ first ceremony, both the field of literature and the vibrancy of the Australian speculative fiction community have grown substantially. The past few years of shortlists and winners can be found by searching on this website. Winners from years prior to that can be found on this list of past finalists and winners. The many years of shortlists are not only a great guide to a basic bookshelf selection of the best Australian works, but also a useful survey of nearly thirty years worth of significant topics and themes, a who’s who of the genre locally and the growth of the Australian publishing industry’s commitment to the genre.
The Science Fiction Awards Database (SFADB) maintains a comprehensive, alphabetised list of nominees / winners.
