Sir Julius Vogel Awards 2011: Congratulations To The Winners!

The 2011 Sir Julius Vogel Awards - New Zealand's annual awards for science fiction, fantasy and horror - were awarded at Queen's Birthday Weekend at ConText, New Zealand's 2011 national Science Fiction Convention.

I didn't attend the Con, and didn't have anything on the ballot, but I am glad to see some friends and familiar names among the winners. Congratulations, one and all! Here's the official press release announcing the results, with some links I've added.
