Do you know if the either of the ceremonies will be available to those not virtually “attending” the con?
We have asked about this, but have not yet had a response from CoNZealand about their plans for the two ceremonies being made available for non-members. If we hear anything, we will announce it.
We have had an update from CoNZealand:
The Retro-Hugo Awards Ceremony is only available to attending members.
The 2020 Hugo Awards Ceremony will be streamed live and free to all on The Fantasy Network. We’ll update the post and we’ve sent this out on our Twitter feed as well.
