The Hugo Award® is the leading award for excellence in the field of science fiction and fantasy. The Hugos were first presented in 1953 and have been awarded every year since 1955 by the members of the World Science Fiction Society (Worldcon members) at the World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon). The complete list of Hugo Award winners can be found at the official Hugo Award website. The current rules for the Hugo Awards are contained in Article 3 of the WSFS Constitution.

Voting for the Hugo Awards takes place in two stages. The first stage, nomination, was open to anyone who had a Supporting or Attending membership in the previous or current Worldcon as of January 31, 2022. For Chicon 8, this meant members of DisCon III (the 2021 Worldcon) and Chicon 8 itself. During this stage, members were able to nominate any eligible work or person.

The second stage of voting was the final ballot. This stage was open only to Chicon 8 members (including those who joined after January 31, 2022). In the final ballot, members choose between the finalists in each category.
