Ditmar Awards open for nominations

The Australian spec-fic fan-voted Ditmar Awards are now open for nominations. Any active fan or member of Continuum can vote. Continuum is the Melbourne SF convention, which is this year’s NatCon, and will be happening in June. The Ditmars are always awarded during the annual NatCon. You can vote electronically here: http://ditmars.sf.org.au/2012/nominations.html and electronic voting is open until April 15th.

All the rules and details are here: http://wiki.sf.org.au/Ditmar_rules

There’s also a massive, though probably not comprehensive, list of eligible works here: http://wiki.sf.org.au/2012_Ditmar_eligibility_list. This list is a good place to start reminding yourself of what you read and enjoyed last year.

Please do get active and vote for any work you really enjoyed in 2011. The more people that get involved and vote, the more realistic and honest the resulting awards. When it comes to fan-voted (as opposed to judging panel) awards, it’s important to get as many votes in as possible. And voting really couldn’t be easier. So if you’ve read something you enjoyed, take a few minutes and vote for it. Make your voice heard and give that good work the recognition it deserves.
