Awards season is upon us! Here is my official post about what awards When We Wake is eligible for this year.

When We Wake is eligible for:

The Sir Julius Vogel Awards.

NOTE: If you're thinking, "hey, I really liked Karen's book, I'd like to nominate it for something, but I don't have time for a lot of selection and consideration, I wonder which award she'd most prefer nomination for," the answer is: this one.

SFFANZ is awesome, and supporting New Zealand spec fic creativity is very important to me. I also really like that the nomination process is open to ANYONE; nationality, organisation, or con membership are irrelevant. All that's important is that you liked something, and want it to be recognised.

Eligibility: SFFANZ awards apply to works of fantasy, horror, or science fiction, by New Zealand citizens or residents, released in the previous calendar year. When We Wake is eligible for nomination in the Best Young Adult Novel category.

Who can nominate: Anyone at all! Non-New Zealanders are welcome.
How to nominate: email sjv_awards@sffanz.org.nz with the following information:

The Nebula Awards

Eligibility: "All works first published in English, in the United States, during the calendar year, in the genres of science fiction, fantasy, or a related fiction genre are eligible for the Nebula Awards® in their respective categories." When We Wake is eligible for The Andre Norton Award for Outstanding Young Adult Science Fiction or Fantasy Book. (This award isn't actually a Nebula, but the same process and ceremony take place).

Who can nominate: "A work must be nominated by an Active, Lifetime Active, Associate or Lifetime Associate member of the SFWA (with no fiduciary interest–which means, not the writer, not the editor, the agent, publicist, or significant other)."

Nominations close: 15th Februrary, US time.


The Hugo Awards

Eligibility. WorldCon members award the best works released in the US and worldwide in fantasy, science fiction, and horror (ALSO the fan awards, which are pretty darn neat).

Who can nominate: You! If you are an attending or supporting member of Loncon 3 (the 2014 World Science Fiction Convention), and/or you are an attending or supporting member of Sasquan (the 2015 World Science Fiction Convention), and/or you were an attending or supporting member of LoneStarCon 3 (the 2013 World Science Fiction Convention).
How to nominate: Hugo nominations and voting are a trifle complicated, so I shall link to them here. When We Wake is eligible for Best Novel.

Nominations close: 31 March, 2014.
