The 2009 Trophy

Pictures of the 2009 Hugo Award trophy, designed by Dave Howell, are now online here. Be sure to check out the top-down view of the base, which shows the blast pit as the Hugo rocket lifts off from the asteroid base.

2008 Base Design Competition

Denvention 3, the 2008 World Science Fiction Convention, has announced a competition to find a designer for its Hugo Award trophy base. As usual, the trophy design must include the standard Hugo rocket.

The rules of the competition are available on Denvention 3’s web site, and an archive of past trophies can be found on this site.

All inquiries regarding the competition should be directed to Denvention 3, not to WSFS.

Update, January 2, 2008: The competition closed December 31, 2007.
