CoNZealand: Hugo awards open for nominations (award news).

Nominations for the 2020 Hugo Awards (and, heck, the 1945 Retro Hugos), the US-based awards for honouring the tip-top in SF literature, media and fan activities, are now open. Nominations will close on March 13th 2020.

The Hugos, named in honour of author and editor Hugo Gernsback, have been awarded since 1953 and are fan-run, fan-given and fan-supported. CoNZealand, the 2020 annual Worldcon, is administering the awards.

Co-Chairs Kelly Buehler and Norman Cates told SFcrowsnest, “We are thrilled to administer and host such an important event in our community. The Hugo Awards are synonymous with some of the most beloved and respected works in the science fiction space, and we are excited to see which works, individuals and groups are nominated for the upcoming awards.”

Nominations can be made by all attending or supporting members of CoNZealand and members of Dublin 2019. Eligible members can nominate up to five works and/or individuals for each of the 17 categories covering the best in the genre in 2019.

Nominations are also open for the Lodestar Award for Best Young Adult Book, the Astounding Award for Best New Writer (formerly known as the John W. Campbell Award), and also for the 1945 Retro Hugos, celebrating the genre work of 1944..

Instructions have been sent to eligible nominators by email.
