Ursa Major awards

The winners of the 2011 Ursa Major Awards were announced at CaliFur VIII on Saturday. There's no dedicated page for the 2011 winners on the website yet, but you can see them on the front page.

Notably, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic won the award for Best Dramatic Series or Short Work, and Equestria Daily won the award for Best Website. This might be surprising to some (it certainly seems to have surprised the latter site), but it's in line with the Ursas' broad and inclusive definition of anthropomorphic works, which states that "a work [...] must [have] included a non-human being given human attributes (anthropomorphic), which can be mental and/or physical" in order to qualify. MLP:FiM and EqD definitely meet that.

More simply put, the Ursas may often feature works that are part of or associated with the furry fandom, but they're in no way exclusive to it; they cover the entire abstract fandom and all things anthropomorphic, not just the (dis)organized furry fandom proper.
