So in case you’re unawares, the World Science Fiction Society is holding a contest to design the official logo for The Hugo Award. In there own words:
“Although the rocket atop the Hugo Award has been one of the most visible signs of excellence in science fiction and fantasy for more than fifty years, there has never been an official logo to designate works as Hugo Award nominees or winners. The World Science Fiction Society now aims to change that by soliciting designs for such a logo, with the winning design to be the official logo suitable for use in the publishing and film/television industries.”
I probably would have jumped at the opportunity regardless of the circumstances, but when I saw that two of my favorite people, Neil Gaiman and Irene Gallo, are on the Judging Panel, it became an opportunity I couldn’t ignore. You can learn more about the contest here, and find the submission guidelines here.
The deadline for entries passed on May 31st, and as we eagerly await the judges’ decision, you can view my submission below.
