Hugo Award Winners
Hugo award winners are those beautiful science fiction books that are chosen by the members of the world science fiction convention (“Worldcon”). These awards are also presented at the World science Fiction Convention. The annual world science fiction convention is sponsored by the World Science Fiction Society (“WSFS”) which has trademarked the Hugo Awards. The Hugo awards started in 1953 and presented annually since 1955.
The Hugo Awards are dedicated to Mr. Hugo Gernsback who was founder of Amazing Stories which was the first major American science fiction magazine in 1926. Every April the shortlist list of 5 finalist out of many is announced and is sent for final balloting. By the end of July, the members of the Worldcon cast their final vote and then the winners are announced at the Hugo ceremony who receive a special trophy. All the members of Worldcon can vote. The membership is paid.
