2015 Hugo Award Base Competition Announced

The 2015 World Science Fiction Convention (“Sasquan”) announced today an open competition to design the base of the 2015 Hugo Award.

The Hugo Award trophy consists of a rocket design standardized since 1984 on a design by Peter Weston and recently registered as a service mark by the World Science Fiction Society. Worldcon committees design the base, and most recent Worldcons have conducted competitions to select a design.

Full details including the specifications and submission guidelines, are on the 2015 Worldcon web site. Direct any questions about the competition to the 2015 Hugo Base Competition Subcommittee, not to the Hugo Awards web site.
