About the HorrorHound ICON Award
The HorrorHound ICON Award is the evolution of HorrorHound’s Lifetime Achievement Award, which was launched in 2009 in a ceremony honoring the career of Clive Barker. Additional names given this annual award include Lin Shaye, Elvira, Dick Miller, and Barbara Steele. Post-pandemic, the HorrorHound team rechristened the award as the “ICON,” with aim to honor names who have not only had a storied career in the industry – but for those who have given their all to elevate the horror genre as a whole. Not only starring in, or directing projects, but helping further the careers of those in the industry as producers, writers, and mentors.
HorrorHound is a horror-centric magazine, book, film, and record publishing company, formed in 2005. In 2007 HorrorHound Weekend was launched. HorrorHound Weekend and the HorrorHound Film Festival have become the largest horror-based convention in North America. HorrorHound has been honored with various awards – including Best Convention, as well as Best Fan Event, by the prestigious Rondo Hatton Awards. HorrorHound Weekend and Film Festival was honored in 2016 by NUVO Magazine as recipients of their Cultural Vision Trailblazer Award for their continued support of independent filmmakers and cinema. HorrorHound Film Fest was named in Cinema Runner’s “Indie Horror’s Secret Seven,” as one of the most influential brands in indie horror.
