The Prix Aurora Awards are part of the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Association (CSFFA). Each year, members can vote for their favourite works and/or creatives in several categories. Right now, members can download all the nominated works (membership is $10 a year). How awesome is that? If you are a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident, you can even join now. The voting window is from June 20–July 25, 2020 (11:59PM EDT) Learn more at the CSFFA website about becoming a member.
