The Pegasus Awards were founded by the Ohio Valley Filk Fest to recognize and honor excellence in filking. Filk music, according to Wikipedia, is defined as "a musical culture, genre, and community tied to science fiction/fantasy fandom and a type of fan labor. The genre has been active since the early 1950s, and played primarily since the mid-1970s. The term (originally a typographical error) predates 1955."

Congratulations!
