I keep seeing it on Twitter, but I haven’t seen much in the way of heads-ups in less ephemeral fannish media, so here’s what I know. Note that I don’t have any insider knowledge; this is just assembling links and publicly posted information for the convenience of anyone who might have missed the chatter.
Nominations close at 23:59 North American Pacific Daylight Time (GMT - 7) on March 31, 2016. You do not have to fill all the nomination slots or nominate in all categories to participate. If you are unsure whether a work is eligible, the rules are stated in plain English here. Hugo administrators will rule on edge cases.
Happy nominating! It’s been an awesome year for our genre; there’s a lot to choose from.
Mod note: Please only comment on this post about the process of getting your PIN and logging in, plus related matters. I’m going to unpublish or disemvowel conversations about the works to nominate, the ways people choose those works, and all mention of domestic mammals of any sort. I haven’t the spoons just at the moment.
a voting member of the 2015 [Sasquan], 2016 [MidAmeriCon II], or 2017 [Worldcon 75 in Helsinki] Worldcons by the end of the day (23:59 North American Pacific Standard Time/GMT - 8) on January 31, 2016
Updated to add: the MidAmeriCon II Twitter account posted this update:
Our Hugo team have identified an issue with our Hugo Pin mailing software which prevented some people from receiving their pins. (1/3)— MidAmeriCon II (@MidAmeriCon2) February 14, 2016
We are working to resolve the problem and will be resending pins to everyone as soon as possible. (2/3)— MidAmeriCon II (@MidAmeriCon2) February 14, 2016
We are very sorry for the inconvenience and delay this has caused. (3/3)— MidAmeriCon II (@MidAmeriCon2) February 14, 2016
…so it’s worth waiting a bit to see if the PIN email turns up. You may still have to fiddle with names and numbers once it does.
Further bulletins as events warrant.
