Campbell Pins!

I just saw this post at Science Fiction Awards Watch that says that Jay Lake has announced a Campbell nominee pin, and that former nominees and winners will be getting pins. As a former nominee and winner myself, I am delighted, and I can't wait to get my pin.

I did ask two questions over there, though:

1. Does this mean that Campbell nominees will no longer get Hugo pins? (Some Worldcons gave them Hugo pins, some didn’t. In my case, I have Hugo pins for both times I was nominated.)

2. Do writers who were nominated for the Campbell twice get two pins? (To put this in perspective, every time someone gets nominated for a Hugo or a Nebula, they get a pin. As a double-nominee for the Campbell myself, I have an admitted vested interest in this question.)

A question I didn't ask about there: what about deceased nominees and winners? I'd like to see David Feintuch's heirs get one.

Also, if anyone has a link to a picture of the new pin, could they post the link? I'd love to see it.

As usual, I'll be gone from the Internet until Saturday night local time. Play nice.
