1953 Best Cover Artist Hugo

Category: Best Cover Artist.

Winner: (tie): Hannes Bok and Ed Emshwiller

The Best Cover Artist category was a one-time category, replaced in 1955 (the next year the Hugos were awarded) with Best Professional Artist. This category has survived, and was also awarded for the 1954 Retro Hugo Awards and the 1951 Retro Hugo Awards.

This first year of the Hugos there was no shortlist of nominees, nor voting by the members of the convention. The winner was chosen by the Philcon II committee.

Presented September 7, 1953 at Philcon II.
