MoPOP Accepting Nominations for Next 'Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame' Class

MoPOP Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame in Seattle

Science fiction and fantasy enthusiasts, we need your help! 

The Museum of Pop Culture is currently accepting nominations for our Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame, an exhibition that invites visitors to explore the lives and legacies of some of pop culture's most influential creators and creations.

To nominate a creator or creation, simply shoot an e-mail with your nominations to, leave us a comment on social media, or reply to this blog below! Once our nomination window closes, a panel of award-winning science fiction and fantasy authors, artists, editors, publishers, and film professionals will narrow the public's nominees down to a list of finalists, at which point the public will vote online to determine MoPOP's next SFFHOF class. 

Founded in 1996, the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame was relocated from the Gunn Center for the Study of Science Fiction at the University of Kansas to its permanent home at MoPOP in 2004. Last year, we inducted two creations and two creators to our Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame, including Star Wars and Watchmen, plus science fiction and fantasy short story writer Ted Chiang, as well as screen and television writer D.C. Fontana. If you're mulling through potential nominations in your head and need a little inspiration, be sure to check out our current list of 120 inductees.

Which creators and creations will make up the class of 2021? It's entirely up to you.
