2006 Ditmar Awards

The voting form for the 2006 Ditmar Awards has now been released [PDF file].

These awards honour Australian works in the fields of science fiction, fantasy and horror. To be eligible to vote you must be a supporting or attending member of Conjure, the 2006 National Science Fiction Convention being held this year in Brisbane over 14-17 April.

So these are reader awards - the Australian version of the Hugos. To put it mildly, there
are some strange things about this ballot. I make no comment on the worth of the nominees: I take it as given that they are all worthy of being on this final list. I just think things could have been handled differently. As a member of the Natcon committee advising on these matters I made my views plain yesterday to the rest of the committee. To no avail it seems.
