The Hugo Awards at DisCon III

Special Category

A Worldcon committee may choose to create a special Hugo Award category for that year, and the DisCon III committee has announced that there will be a special category of Best Video Game for the awards in 2021.

Concierge Team

DisCon III has created the Hugo Concierge Team, under the Hugo Administration Subcommittee. The team consists of Kat Jones, Chris Brathwaite, and Kathy Bond, and it will facilitate a smooth experience for Hugo finalists from the composition of the final ballot through the end of the convention and post-convention wrap-up.
The Hugo Concierge Team will work with finalists to:
  • Gather creators’ names and contact information
  • Create and foster connections with the program and events teams who manage program participation and the Awards ceremony and reception.
  • Provide relevant and timely information to finalists and ensure clear and constant communication
If you have any questions regarding the Concierge Team, please contact
