The BSFA Awards are presented annually by the British Science Fiction Association, based on a vote of BSFA members and – in recent years – members of the British national science fiction convention Eastercon. They are fan awards that not only seek to honour the most worthy examples in each category, but to promote the genre of science fiction, and get people reading, talking about and enjoying all that contemporary science fiction has to offer.
This year, the awards ceremony took place at Ytterbium, the 70th Eastercon at the Park Inn Hotel, Heathrow. Jeanette Ng was the presenter and categories were awarded by the Guests of Honour DC, John Scalzi, Sydney Padua and Frances Hardinge.
The ceremony was livestreamed by Chad Dixon, and can be seen on his Periscope channel here. Update: Now also available on YouTube!
