1999 World Fantasy Awards
The nine awards are presented at the banquet of the World Fantasy Convention held each year around the end of October. Two of the nominees on the final ballot are determined by readers while the remainder come from the ballots put together by a panel of judges who change annually. The judges select the recipients in a second round of voting. The awards are based on work done during the previous calendar year.

Listed here are the nominations for all categories (the award recipients appear at the top of each category in bold) but that for Lifetime Achievement. The nominees for that award are not released in advance.
