Nomination Period Extended

Voting now closes at 10pm Thursday 19th January 2012

The BSFA Awards is an exciting time for the BSFA. It is our chance, as a community, to stand up and have our favourite books counted and recognised. For this reason we have extended the nomination period for the BSFA Awards to 10pm Thursday 19th January 2012. 

We are committed to getting your voice heard, so not only have we extended the deadline, but have made the process so much easier. This year we have created an online voting form that you can complete and submit your nominations directly to us. Complete the form here as soon as you can: http://insight.beyondtheblurb.com/index.php?sid=95489 

Some things to remember.

  • The shortlist is generated from the nominations with the most votes. So if your favourite book is on the current nomination list then vote now (see the current lists here) http://www.bsfa.co.uk/news/bsfa-awards-nominations-update/You don’t have to have read every book, blog or short story to nominate. Just vote for the ones you have read and enjoyed.
  • You can vote for as many works as you like in as many categories as you like.
  • Every vote matters. Some years the difference between getting on the short list has been 1 vote. Ensure your favourites are nominated.
  • Vote for artwork. You can see all the nominated artwork online now. So even if you don’t vote for works, you can still vote for artwork.

Thanks,
— The BSFA Team

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. 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?
