Special Committee Awards are occasionally presented at the annual World Science Fiction Convention as determined by the convention committee. Though sometimes informally referred to as Special Hugos (and a few early ones apparently actually were rocket-shaped trophies), they are not voted by the Worldcon membership and are not considered Hugos.
