CoNZealand is now soliciting proposals for the 2020 Hugo Award and the 1945 Retro Hugo Award base designs in a competition open to artists living and working in New Zealand. This competition gives New Zealand-based artists the chance to create a lasting piece of the most prestigious and popular award in the science fiction community.
The Worldcon has presented the Hugo Award for achievement in science fiction and fantasy, named after author and editor Hugo Gernsback, annually since 1955. Each award features a standardized metal rocket as the central element, with a base design that changes every year, often reflecting the location in which the Worldcon takes place.
Entry in the competition is open to artists living or working in New Zealand. Design proposals must be submitted by Friday, January 17, 2020. For all the specifics go to https://conzealand.nz/blog/2019/11/27/conzealand-competition-to-design-2020-hugo-and-1945-retro-hugo-bases
