The awards are given by The Mythopoeic Society, a nonprofit educational organization of readers, scholars, and fans of the works of the Inklings (J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Williams) and of the related genres of myth and fantasy studies. The awards are small statuettes of a seated lion (intended to evoke thoughts of, but not officially named after, Aslan from C.S. Lewis's Narnian books), inscribed with a plaque on the base.
