Ed Emshwiller received enough nominations to be on the ballot in the Best Professional Artist category. However, the Hugo Committee has determined that his first professional work was in 1951 and therefore he's ineligible to appear on the ballot.
Harlan Ellison received enough nominations to be on the ballot in the Best Fan Writer category. However, the Hugo Committee has determined that he did not have any fan writing published in 1950.
Both Bjo Trimble and Dave Kyle received enough nominations to be on the ballot in the Best Fan Artist category. However, the Hugo Committee has not found any work by either in 1950.
After discussion with Stanley Schmidt of Analog, it was decided that conducting nominations for the Campbell Award would be inappropriate.
