The Shelly Awards are Farscape Fan Video awards. The awards were started by LithiumDoll in 2002. While Farscape Fan fiction had the Sparkys Awards, there were no awards for vidders. Starting in 2005, LT Garrix took over the coordination of the "behind the scenes" activity.

From the 2007 FAQ:

  • Why are some categories mutually exclusive? In 2005 I noticed that some vids were not compatible with more than one category. For exampe Destiny's Couple/Suns and Lovers and Out of the Their Minds/A Human Reaction. To be a good character study, the shippy aspect would be de-emphasized and vice versa. A good shippy vid is generally not about a single character, so choose your category wisely. If a vid is nominated in both categories, I will contact the vidder for a preference unless I see it clearly tipping one way or the other. Another would be Crackers Don't Matter and either Infinite Possibilities or Season of Death. Comdey and Drama/Tragedy are exact opposites. The full list is in the category description.

In additional, every year vidders would be inducted into the "Shelly Hall of Fame". Again from the 2007 FAQ: Members of the Hall of Fame are vidders that have consistently produced excellent work. The criteria are as follows: have earned 20 vidder points and hve received wins in a minimum of 5 categories. Source: Hall of Fame page; WebCite.
