New Fan Fund Opens

NAFF is the National Australian Fan Fund, designed to assist in trans-Australian travel to attend the National Science Fiction Convention (NAFF provides funds to cover transport costs and convention membership).

NAFF's first Press Release continues:

This year’s Natcon will take place in Perth, Western Australia over the Easter weekend. Fans residing in all states and territories except Western Australia are eligible to be nominated to be the recipient of this year’s NAFF. Preference will be given to those who have a) not attended a Natcon and/or b) have not attended a convention in the state/territory of [the] current Natcon.

Each nominated fan is required to provide a 200 (max.) word description indicating what they could bring to interstate fans and a brief description of their fannish history. It is expected that the winner will produce a report of their trip and will engage in fundraising to support future NAFF races.

As this is the very first NAFF, the final decision will be made by the committee. The committee currently consists of Grant Watson (Western Australia) and Sue Ann Barber (Victoria). Future NAFF races may involve voting by the fan community.

To be eligible for consideration for NAFF, your nomination must be received by 26th February 2001. Nominations may be received by email to activeim@hotmail.com, by snail mail to PO Box 238, Brunswick East, 3057 or handed personally to either Sue Ann Barber or Grant Watson. Nominations received after the deadline will not be considered.
