BSFA Awards Nominations – 2 days to go!

Calling all BSFA members – we STILL need your nominations!

Members have until 11th January to get their nominations in and can find all the rules and regulations of what to do here.

If you have a list, you may prefer to email me at awards@bsfa.co.uk rather than use the form. I don’t mind!

Many of the nominations are viewable online and links are provided – why not have a peek?

Also, just because you see something on the list, don’t assume it has a shortlist number of nominations behind it. It’s on the list if it got at least one nomination – and some of them do have just the one nomination.

Thank you to those who noticed the artwork hyperlinks had got a little mixed up – it should all be sorted now, but if you do spot any anomalies I’ll sort them out as quickly as possible.

About Donna Scott

Chair of the BSFA since June 2013. Prior to this I was Awards Administrator, taking over that role from Claire Briarley in 2008. I am officially Donna Bond since getting married in May 2013, but continue to write and perform under my previous name, Donna Scott. My short fiction stories have been published in various anthologies and magazines, and I was winner of the inaugural Short Cuts at the MAC in 2005. As a comedian, I have performed all over the UK and supported the likes of Diane Spencer, Andrew O'Neill and Wil Hodgson. Comedy has also given me the opportunity to perform alongside big names like Sarah Millican and Jasper Carrott! As a poet, I've also performed all over the place, including lots of science fiction conventions, and sometimes my poetry and comedy get kind of mixed up. I was the first official Bard of Northampton, it's true. I've got a tankard that says so... I love being a part of the BSFA - I've always been a devourer of books and being part of this association has enabled me to explore some great science fiction classics - and classics of the future, that I might otherwise have not heard about. I've met some lovely people with an enthusiasm for the genre, made firm friends, and got to meet some of my favourite writers, too! As a writer, I also have to say that FOCUS is the best magazine for writers I've ever come across - and as a member I get that for free. Who wouldn't want to be a part of this?
