BSFA Nominees So Far: Best Artwork

With just a few days to go (midnight on Friday) until nominations close for this year’s BSFA Awards, the Awards Administrator Donna Scott has been diligently posting lists of the nominees so far on the BSFA forum. To provide an excuse to remind you all several times to email her with your nominations, I’m going to post one category per day here, starting with Best Artwork — for which you can find some additional suggestions here and here.

    Hello,

    I’m not sure whom to address this, but the artist for THE STORIES OF IBIS is Natsuki Lee. Is there an official address to send this information to? Thanks!

  2. Niall Says:

    Hi Nick,

    Thanks for the information! I’ll point Donna at this thread. (To be absolutely sure she sees it you could also drop an email to awards@bsfa.co.uk, as well.)

    There is some good stuff here. And…..a few things that must have gotten a vote from mom or something. Anyway, standouts for me are:

    The Stories of Ibis

    Finch (although I think the U.S. trade cover more accurately represents the actual story)

    Ben Greene’s cover for Crossed Genres #21.

    The Habitation of the Blessed

    It will be interesting to see who makes the final nomination list.
