The call for nominations for the 2011 National Australia Fan Fund (NAFF) has opened. NAFF sends one fan each year to the current National Science Fiction Convention, which this year will be held in Perth at Swancon Thirty Six | Natcon Fifty. Any active fan living outside Western Australia is eligible to nominate.
The South Western Fan Fund has been introduced to help send a representative from the Southern US to Westercon and a Western representative to DeepSouthCon on alternating years. The SWFF is based on existing fan funds and will exist through the donations of fans. This year’s fund will allow a Southern fan to travel to the 2011 Westercon. Candidates should declare by March 1. The current fan fund administrators are Christopher J. Garcia and Warren Buff.
