Science Fiction Awards Watch

The folks at Concatenation sent along a notice that the Zagreb website (host of the 2012 Eurocon) has posted the correct awards list for 2012:

The European Scientific Fiction Society (ESFS) is committed to promoting Science Fiction in Europe and European Science Fiction worldwide. Every year the ESFS grants awards for the outstanding contribution to the genre of science fiction at the European level. The awards’s design is different each time, chosen by the host country.

The ESFS award ceremony 2012 was held in Zagreb on April, Saturday, 28. The Croatian design of the ESFS award was a green glass plaque with the etched Glagolitic letters: ”ESFS Contact Award 2012?.
