Yes, it was open for suggestions at the beginning of January last year. Maybe they aren't doing one this time - it is an optional part of the rules, and it can be quite a lot of work. I'll email the awards administrator and ask.

BFS members got the email saying that suggestions are open till March 27. I've made my first contributions (adding the Hexagonal Phase of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy to audio, and Unholy Lands by Lavie Tidhar to best fantasy novel).

Submit suggestions here.

Spreadsheet of suggestions is here.

And if you want to watch the categories build up in real time, here's an unofficial alpha-sorted version of the list. [Deleted link to avoid confusion when people are voting.]

I think this is the first time since I joined the society that there haven't been any changes to the categories from one year to the next.
