For the first time, the Nebula Awards Ceremony will be streamed on the internet so those unable to attend may watch the event in real time on May 15th. Watch the SFWA website for details, but now we want to turn your attention to a special opportunity for those in the New York City area.
Thanks to the ability to stream the ceremony, we are able to offer a satellite event. For those in the New York City Area who cannot attend the May 15th 2010 Nebula Awards Dinner in Cocoa Beach, Florida, the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (www.sfwa.org) has arranged a large-screen Simulcast of the Florida-based ceremony – along with a full-scale reception and dinner – to be hosted by The SoHo Gallery for Digital Art located at 138 Sullivan St. in New York, NY. The SGDA is owned by John Ordover, who has spent over 20 years in the science fiction field.
The New York evening begins with a reception at the gallery from 6pm to 7pm, followed by an upscale banquet. The Simulcast is scheduled to begin between 7:00 and 7:30 as attendees in Florida and New York are being seated for dinner; from then the New York banquet will run in concert with the Florida gathering until the Nebula Awards Ceremony has concluded. As of this writing at least one of the Nebula Award nominees is expected to attend the New York function.
The cost of the evening is $65 for SFWA members and those working in the genre , $75 for all others; 30% of the proceeds from the banquet will be donated to the SFWA Emergency Medical Fund. There are only Fifty (50) seats available so please act promptly.
