Hugo Nominations Deadline Tonight
Back in January I put up a long post about award nominations, with a particular mention of Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time.
Well, if you’re a member of the 2013, 2014, or 2015 World Science Fiction conventions, it’s time to submit your nomination form for the Hugo Awards. The deadline is tomorrow morning at 7:59 a.m. BST—since this year’s Worldcon is in London, the deadline would be in GMT, except for that pesky Daylight Saving Time thing being in effect, which means it’s not actually GMT. Anyway, in the US, the deadline is 11:59 p.m. Pacific time tonight.
If you’re not a member of any of those Worldcons, it’s too late to register to be eligible to nominate. But anyone who registers before the Hugo Awards voting deadline will be able to vote on the final ballot once the nominees are announced and voting opens. There will likely be a Hugo Voters Packet for registered Loncon 3 members that includes most if not all nominated works. A Supporting Membership that lets you vote for the Hugo Awards is currently £25 or $40.
