Nominations are open for both the Hugo and Nebula Awards, and wouldn’t you know it, Tor.com had the honor of publishing some eligible works in 2010!
Hugo winners are selected by the members of Worldcon. This year’s convention is Renovation, in Reno, NV, but members from last year are also eligible to nominate; you need to buy at least a supporting membership for Renovation by January 31 in order to nominate.
The Hugo nominations period is open through Saturday, March 26th, 2011. The ballot is here, and you may nominate up to five works in each category.
The Nebula Awards are voted on by active members of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Inc. (SFWA for short). Nebula nominations are open through Tuesday, February 15, and the form is here; you must be a SFWA member, and logged in, to nominate.
