2017 Hugo Ceremony Coverage Plans

The 2017 Hugo Awards Ceremony is scheduled for Friday, August 11, 2017 at 7:30 PM Eastern European Summer Time (UTC+3) in the Messukeskus (Convention Center) Hall 1 in Helsinki, Finland. The Hugo Awards web site will once again offer text-based coverage of the Hugo Awards ceremony via CoverItLive, suitable for people with bandwidth restrictions. For those with the bandwidth for it, Worldcon 75 Helsinki plans to offer live video streaming of the Hugo Awards ceremony via their YouTube channel. Details of the live-streaming coverage will be available at the 2017 Worldcon web site.

The Hugo Awards web site coverage team of Kevin Standlee, Cheryl Morgan, and Susan de Guardiola plan to be “on the air” approximately fifteen minutes before the ceremony. You can sign up at the CoverItLive event site for an e-mail notification before the event starts. Remember that the CoverItLive text coverage is text-only, and is likely to not be in synch with the video streaming. Also, the CoverItLive team here at TheHugoAwards.org is not responsible for the video streaming coverage and cannot answer any questions about it.

If you can’t be in Helsinki, we hope you’ll join us on CoverItLive or watch the ceremony on YouTube.
