The Hugo Awards were first presented in 1953 and have been awarded annually since 1955. Members of the Worldcon vote on them for the given year, while the sitting Worldcon is responsible for administering them.
As permitted under the rules, the Chicon 8 Committee has irrevocably delegated all Hugo Award Administration authority to a subcommittee. Therefore, Kat Jones, Jesi Lipp, Brian Nisbet, and Nicholas Whyte are ineligible for 2022 Hugo Awards. Any other member of the committee remains eligible.
Complete information about the nominating process is available at Hugo Awards – Chicon 8.
