The Prize for Best Album (Prix du meilleur album), also known as the Fauve d'Or ("Golden Wildcat"), is awarded to comics authors at the Angoulême International Comics Festival.
As is the customary practice in Wikipedia for listing awards such as Oscar results, the winner of the award for that year is listed first, the others listed below are the nominees.
At the first two festivals (1974 and 1975), prizes were given only to creators, not books. From 1976 to 1978, the "best work" award was presented in four categories, foreign and French realistic and comical work. In 1981, the award was revived as simply "best album." From 1986 to 2001 it was again divided into two awards, French and foreign comic, but since 2002 it has once again returned to a single "best album" category.
