The deadline for submitting nominations for the 2009 Hugo Awards is fast approaching. You must complete your ballot before midnight (PST) on Saturday, February 28th. You can find the online ballot here (aussi ici en Français).
Please do not wait until Saturday night to cast your ballot. We can’t guarantee that some part of the Internet won’t have problems at the most inconvenient time.
You can now demonstrate your interest in the Hugo Awards by wearing Officially Licensed Hugo Award T-Shirts. These “Classic Hugo Award” shirts list the names of people who won Hugo Awards at least 25 years ago (including Retro-Hugo Awards) on the back and a set of different humorous designs on the front. And yes, one of the front designs does say, “I’m on the back.” Our thanks to Steve Davidson for designing these shirts and making them available.
The Hugo Awards now have their own Twitter feed (you can find our page here). We don’t expect to do much tweeting, but there will be announcements on the feed when we make new posts here. And of course we hope to tweet this year’s winners live from Worldcon in Montreal as they are announced.
