We welcome you to join us as a member of Worldcon 75!
Note: members who joined by 31st of January 2017 are eligible to nominate for this year’s Hugo Awards. Members joining after that date are not eligible to nominate, but will still be eligible to vote in the Final Ballot, provided they have joined before voting ends.
We expect to offer day memberships for Worldcon 75 nearer to the time of the convention, and we will publish details of prices and availability here and on social media in the early summer.
One of the goals of Worldcon 75 is to be a more inclusive event and more accessible to new members of fandom. We would like to encourage new fans to join Worldcon, whether they heard about our convention in the month after we won the bid (in 2015) or in the months just prior to the convention (July 2017). If you have never had a Worldcon membership of any kind, you are eligible for the First Worldcon Membership price of 95 euros, which was the price of an adult membership when we first started this convention. We hope to see you in Helsinki!
People who voted in Worldcon site selection in 2015 (administered by Sasquan) have, at minimum, an automatic supporting membership to Worldcon 75. This entitles you to a discounted attending membership if you wish to upgrade to attending our convention.
Friends and subscribers of the Helsinki in 2017 Worldcon bid who voted on site selection in 2015 are automatic full attending members of Worldcon 75. This is regardless of how you voted, and we appreciate each of the 2624 people who participated in the vote! If you were a friend or subscriber who didn't manage to vote, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
Pre-supporters of the Helsinki in 2017 Worldcon bid are very much appreciated, but the 20 euros of pre-support was entirely used up by the bid’s efforts to win the race. We regret that we are not able to offer you a discount for pre-supporting the bid. However, your reward is that we have won the Worldcon to be placed in Helsinki! If you voted on site selection in 2015, you do have an automatic non-attending (supporting) membership to Worldcon 75. This can be upgraded to an attending membership as above.
All membership rates which are age-bound refer to a person’s age on the first day of the convention, 9 August 2017. Although a Kid-in-Tow is free of charge, please remember to register your wee ones as members. We need information about them in order to appropriately plan for your family’s participation and enjoyment of our convention.
Child and Kid-in-Tow memberships do not include voting rights. We advise you to buy a membership that is for an older age group if you are under 16 but want to have voting rights.
Your membership is personal, but it is possible to transfer your membership (of any kind) to another person. Please contact us at email@example.com if you wish to do this. The type of membership will be retained – child membership for children only, etc.
We intend to have day memberships available, if you cannot join us for all 5 days but wish to pop in for a day or two. The prices will be published in 2017.
If you wish to begin an installment plan for an attending membership, please purchase a supporting membership at this time and email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Installment” in the subject header.
Families or households of 4 or 5 members of any age may register together for a 10% discount on their memberships. Families or households of 6 or more members of any age, may register together for a 15% discount on their memberships.
The discount is calculated based on the membership type people are eligible for, which is based on their age on the first day of the convention. For payment instructions, you must email email@example.com.
If you wish to receive paper copies of the convention’s publications, we will be happy to send those to you for an additional €10 / $12 fee. Our convention default is to receive your pre-convention publications at no additional charge via email or download from this website.
