The Arthur C. Clarke Award is administered by Serendip, a non-profit organisation with the mission of promoting both excellence in and the extension of science fiction.

Over the past few years, Serendip has partnered with institutions like  The British Library and The Royal Society, independent publishers Newcon Press, and writing event Alt.Fiction to achieve these goals, with many more collaborations planned for the future.

The Chairman of Serendip is Tom Hunter, the current Director the Arthur C. Clarke Award.
