A reminder to everybody that the New Zealand National SF/F/H awards are being presented at unCONventional. These awards are named for Sir Julius Vogel who was was a Prime Minister of New Zealand, and in 1889 wrote what was probably the first full length Science Fiction novel by a New Zealander.
The awards are being presented on Sunday evening. All full & supporting members of unCONventional are eligible to vote in the awards. Voting closes at midday on the day of the awards (Sunday). Voting forms will be available at the convention as will samples of the work of the various nominees.
You can find the full list of nominees over at the SFFANZ site.
Nominees and their supporters (partners, friends, publishers) who are not convention members are welcome to attend the awards ceremony. However we would appreciate it if you are planning to attend in this context to just drop us a line so we can let our security staff know.
