The FIA World Endurance Championship is an endurance auto racing series held by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) and the Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO) since 2012 which awards international championships, cups, and trophies to the most successful drivers, teams, and manufacturers in each of the series' categories over the course of a season. Points are awarded based on individual race results as well as for earning pole position in qualifying, with the highest tally of points winning the respective championship, cup, or trophy. The highest awards in the series are the FIA World Endurance Drivers' Championship and the FIA World Endurance Manufacturers' Championship, both of which center around participants in the Le Mans Prototype categories.

World Championships

World Endurance Drivers' Championship

Held since the inception of the series, the Drivers' Championship was initially open to all participants in the FIA World Endurance Championship. This was altered for the 2013 season with the introduction of the FIA World Endurance Cup for GT Drivers as well as the FIA Endurance Trophies for LMP2 and LMGTE Am drivers. The Drivers' Championship was then limited to participants in the LMP1 and LMP2 categories, although LMP2 drivers and privately entered LMP1 drivers are also eligible for their own FIA Trophies.

World Endurance GT Drivers' Championship

The World Endurance Cup for GT Drivers was created in 2013 to give LMGTE drivers their own title separate from the World Drivers' Championship, before being promoted to World Championship status in 2017. Drivers in both the LMGTE Pro and LMGTE Am categories are eligible for the overall championship, although LMGTE Am drivers are also eligible for their own FIA Trophy.

World Manufacturers' Championship

The Manufacturers' Championship has been exclusive to LMP1 entries supported by major automotive manufacturers. Points were awarded to the leading car from each manufacturer until the 2014 season when the top two finishers from each manufacturer were eligible for points. In 2014 the LMP1 class was also divided, with manufacturers limited solely to the LMP1-H category. For the 2012 season, manufacturers were required to drop their two lowest scoring finishes in events other than the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Following the 2017 season the Manufacturers' Championship was dropped due to a lack of manufacturer competition in LMP1. A new LMP1 World Championship was created to be awarded to teams instead.

LMP1 World Endurance Championship

With a lack of manufacturers in the LMP1 championship for the 2018-19 season, a new World Championship was created to be awarded to LMP1 teams in place of the former manufacturers' championship. Unlike the manufacturers' championship, only the top scoring car from each team is eligible to score points.

World GT Manufacturers' Championship

As with the World Endurance GT Drivers' Championship, the World Endurance Cup for GT Manufacturers was elevated to World Championship status in 2017. The championship is open to all manufacturers participating in the LMGTE categories, although only entered manufacturers are eligible for points. All teams from the entered manufacturers are eligible for points. The top two finishers, regardless of category, are awarded points toward the championship.

Trophies

LMP1 Private Teams Drivers' Trophy

The FIA Trophy for the drivers of private entries in the LMP1 category was created in 2014 to award non-manufacturer entries. Due to a lack of privateer LMP1 entries in 2017, the trophy was not awarded before eventually being dropped altogether.

Endurance Trophy for LMGTE Am Drivers

The Trophy for LMGTE Am Drivers is an additional title separate from the World Cup for GT Drivers, only open to drivers in LMGTE Am.

Endurance Trophy for Private LMP1 Teams

A teams title is not held for manufacturers in the LMP1 category, instead a Trophy is awarded to privately entered LMP1 teams. Note that points in this Trophy were awarded solely on the finishing position of private LMP1 entries, with manufacturer entries not included. Although teams may have earned points for a win in the Trophy, they did not score a win in the overall LMP1 standings. Due to a lack of privateer LMP1 entries in 2017, the trophy was not awarded before being dropped altogether.
