2014 TAFF Vote Count

Curt Phillips won the 2014 Trans-Atlantic Fan Fund race with a first-round majority. Here is a report from the fund administrators with the ballot count.


100 votes were cast in North America and 39 votes in Europe. These raised a total of $1,187.68 in North America and £266 in Europe.

The results of the first-place voting can be seen in the table below. The vote of one fan from the Rest of the World has been folded into the results from North America to preserve the anonymity of the vote.

                                    N. America   Europe   Total

Brad & Cindy Foster                     31        14        45

Curt Phillips                             54        21        75

Randy Smith                               15        2         17

No Preference                            0          2         2

Total                                       100        39        139

The 20% rule meant that each qualifying candidate required at least 20 votes in North America and 7 votes in Europe (‘no preference’ was not included when calculating these numbers).

The list of voters follows the jump.

  1. There was also a vote from Tommy Ferguson but it arrived just outside the deadline and so wasn’t counted. We were/are however very happy to accept his donation to TAFF.

  2. Has a fanartist ever won TAFF? If so, it would probably have been ATom, but I don’t seem to recall that he did. Perhaps Barker or Bell, in a later age. But if neither of them, then the trick hasn’t been performed at all.

  3. ATom won in 1964.

    Steve Stiles was TAFF winner in 1968, attending the British Eastercon in Chester that year, where I first met him. His somewhat fictionalized account of the trip may be read here: http://taff.org.uk/reports/ss1.html

    Eddie Jones was the 1969 delegate, Stu Shiffman won in 1981, Rob Hansen in 1984, Dan Steffan in 1995, Sue Mason in 2000.

    I’d say fan artists have been fairly well represented.

  4. You’ve asked this question before and had it answered. Tons of fanartists have won TAFF. Your homework assignment is to read the Wikipedia article about TAFF, write a list of their names and tack it up someplace near your computer to help you remember.
