The Awards are separated into groups. The rules are different for each group.
Hall of Fame Awards – These are nominated and voted upon by National Delegates (each member nation of ESFS may appoint up to three National Delegates).
Spirit of Dedication Awards – These are voted upon by all members of the current year’s Eurocon.
Encouragement Awards – National Delegates of each country may nominate one person from their country to receive these award.
Honorary Awards – These are decided by the organizing committee of the current year’s Eurocon.
