Hugo and Lodestar Bases Unveiled at Chicon 8 Opening Ceremonies

Chicon 8, the 2022 World Science Fiction Convention, displayed the 2022 Hugo Award base and the 2022 Lodestar Award during Opening Ceremonies.

The 2022 Hugo Award base was designed by Brian Keith Ellison, owner of BKE Designs, Inc., a company local to Chicago. Ellison is academically trained as an architect and is also a life-long fan of science fiction. He says the stars on the base were inspired by the Chicago city flag.
