The Locus Science Fiction Foundation has announced the winners in each category of the 2020 Locus Awards. Winners were announced June 27, 2020 at the virtual Locus Awards Weekend; Connie Willis MCed the awards ceremony, with co-presenter Daryl Gregory.

Additional weekend events included readings and panels with leading authors.

The Locus Awards are normally given out at the Locus Awards Weekend each year in Seattle, Washington. This year, of course, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it had to be done virtually, so the entire weekend event was held online. Here’s the ceremony itself:

Locus magazine was founded in 1968 in New York by Charles N. Brown, Ed Meskys, and Dave Vanderwerf . They’ve given the Locus Award every year in various forms since 1970. Gardner Dozois has the most wins.
