The awards are voted on by by members of HispaCon, the national sf convention of Spain. The method appears to be very similar to the Hugo Awards, including the “Australian system” for the final ballot.
Most of the categories are for first publication in Spain. Winners do not have to be Spanish nationals. The language can be any of the official languages of Spain (we think this means Spanish, Euskara (Basque), Catalan and Galician).
Translated works and web sites are exempt from the geographic requirement, as are Anthology and Magazine.
