Please Read These Instructions Carefully Before Casting Your Ballot

Eligibility to Nominate
You may nominate for the Hugo and Campbell Awards if you either:
    •   were an attending or supporting member of L.A.con IV (the 2006 World Science Fiction Convention); or
    •   are an attending or supporting member of Nippon 2007 (the 2007 World Science Fiction Convention) before January 31, 2007

In order to Nominate using this website, you must have received a mailing containg a Personal Identification Number (PIN). This PIN, in conjunction with other identifying information will positively identify you as an eligible nominator.

All ballots must be received by Midnight (2400hrs), Pacific Standard Time on Saturday, March 3, 2007.

How to Nominate
    •   You may nominate up to five persons or works in each category. However, you are permitted (and even encouraged) to make fewer nominations or none at all if you are not familiar with the works that fall into that category. The nominations are equally weighted: the order in which you list them has no effect on the outcome.
    •   "No Award" will appear automatically in every category on the final ballot - there is no need to include that choice in the nominations
    •   Please include source information whenever possible. This is not mandatory, but does make it easier for us to identify the work you intend to nominate. For the Fiction Categories, Dramatic Presentation Categories, Related Book, and Best Professional Artist, space has been provided for this. In the remaining categories there is less room, but if your nominee is not well-known we would appreciate your writing in a source where his or her 2006 work in that category may be found.
    •   The five top vote getters in each category (more in case of ties, fewer if not many nominations are cast in that category) will appear on the final Hugo Awards ballot, which will be distributed in conjunction with the Nippon 2007 PR #5 scheduled for publication April, 2007. Only members of Nippon 2007 (including those who join after January 31, 2007) will be eligible to vote on the final ballot.

If you have any questions, feel free to pass them on to us at hugoadmin@nippon2007.us

Works published in 2006 for the first time anywhere or for the first time in English are eligible for the Hugo Awards being awarded in 2007. Books are considered to have been published on the "publication date" which usually appears with the copyright information on the back of the title page. If there is no stated publication date, the copyright date will be used instead. A dated periodical is considered to have been published on the cover date, regardless of when it was placed on sale or copyrighted. Serialized stories or dramatic presentations are eligible in the year in which the last installment appears.

The 2006 WSFS Business Meeting, as authorized by section 3.2.3 of the WSFS Constitution, passed a resolution providing that works originally published outside the United States of America and first published in the United States of America in 2006 shall also be eligible for the 2007 Hugo Awards, unless they have already appeared on a final Hugo Award ballot.

Other rules of eligibility are given with the specific categories.

Exclusions: The Nippon 2007 Committee has irrevocably delegated all Hugo Administration authority to a subcommittee. Therefore, only Joyce Hooper, Hiroaki Inoue, John Pomeranz, and Peggy Rae Sapienza are ineligible for the 2007 Hugo Awards.

Reproduction and distribution of this ballot is permitted and encouraged, provided that it is reproduced verbatim (including voting instructions), with no additional material other that the name of the person or publication responsible for the reproduction.
