Ballots for the 2014 Fan Activity Achievement Awards (FAAns) can be cast through April 5. Anyone interested in science fiction fanzines is invited to vote.
Awards are presented in eight categories: Best Genzine, Best Personal Fanzine, Best Single Issue, Best Website, Best Fanzine Cover, Best Fan Artist, Best Fan Writer and the Harry Warner Jr. Memorial Award for Best Letterhack.
- A Genzine (General Interest Fanzine) is any fanzine with a significant amount of material by authors other than the editor, or with a multiplicity of editors.
- A Personal Fanzine is any fanzine in which the editor produces all or nearly all its content.
- Fan Writing is presented in a fannish context, e.g. fanzines, apas, fannish blogs, fan websites and social media.
- Fan Art is likewise presented in a fannish context, in fanzines and other forms of publication created by science fiction fans, in any media.
Voters will be invited to register their top three choices in each category. The first choice will receive three points, the second choice two points and the third choice will receive one point. After all ballots are counted, the highest point total in each category will determine the winner.
