2005 was the first year of the Turtledove Awards on the new board. It saw 12 awards handed out. The awards were organized fairly late, in February. Categories were still relatively few and fairly basic. No distinctions were made yet between “New” and “Continuing” categories. This year introduced the very first version of the long-popular makeshift “Harry Turtledove Oscar statuettes” plaque. (An earlier, unused version of the award plaque can be seen here).
