The International Horror Guild (originally the International Horror Critics Guild) was created in 1995 as a way to recognize the achievements of those who create in the field of Horror and Dark vis mere Fantasy. The last awards (for works from 2007) were announced in 2008.

The IHG Awards were determined by a jury of notable, knowledgeable horror/dark fantasy critics and reviewers. Although a juried award, the IHG judges asked that the public make recommendations through e-mail to help them in their search for the most meritorious works. These recommendations were taken into consideration when determining the nominees for the awards. The judges then determined the winners from each category from the final ballot of nominees.

The International Horror Guild really consisted of those who have a deep and abiding affection for the genre and were willing to assert their opinions. In other words, you could have been a member of the IHG if you wish to be.

The IHG Awards were usually announced annually during a special presentation at a convention or other event. The awards were hosted by the World Fantasy Convention, World Horror Convention, and Dragon*Con. The Guild were in no way officially affiliated with WFC, WHC or with Dragon*Con nor was it considered a sponsor of any event. The IHG Awards were overseen by The Mirabundus Project, Inc., a nonprofit organization
