Yang Withdrawn from Hugos

Mansik Yang has been removed from the Best Fan Artist category for the 2017 Hugo Awards. His place will be taken by Elizabeth Leggett. Paper ballots will be reissued, and the online ballot will be amended.

In a statement released May 17, 2017, Worldcon 75 administrators said:

As the packet was being assembled, Mansik Yang, who had been previously announced as a finalist in the Best Fan Artist category, informed the Hugo administrators that in fact he had published no non-commercial work in 2016 and does not qualify for the category. We appreciate his bringing the matter to our attention, and regret that we were not able to clarify the situation sooner.

The revised final ballot for Best Fan Artist is:

  • Ninni Aalto
  • Elizabeth Leggett
  • Vesa Lehtim√§ki
  • Likhain (M. Sereno)
  • Spring Schoenhuth
  • Steve Stiles
