2012 World Fantasy Awards Nomination Period Closes May 31

This year’s World Fantasy Award nomination period is still open. The 2011World Fantasy  Awards will be presented in Toronto, Ontario during the World Fantasy Convention (November 1-4). Deadline for nominating is May 31.

Anyone who has a supporting or full membership from the 2011 World Fantasy Convention, or the upcoming 2012 World Fantasy Convention may nominate works. If you didn’t attend World Fantasy last year, and you don’t plan to attend this year, you can still nominate by purchasing a supporting membership.

Already registered? Go and nominate your favorite works! Here’s a link to the PDF of the nomination ballot. (Note: You may email your ballot to the award administrator, Rodger Turner, to the email address listed on the ballot.)

Here’s a list of works published in Fantasy Magazine in 2011 that are eligible for the World Fantasy Award this year. (Note that the World Fantasy categories are slightly different than the Nebulas and Hugos in regard to word counts: World Fantasy considers a Novella to be 10,000-40,000 words and Short Story to be 10,000 words or less, whereas the Nebulas and Hugos divide those categories differently, and have a third category [Novelette] in between.)
