TAFF Begins Taking Nominations for 2024 Race on 12/1

Trans-Atlantic Fan Fund administrators will accept nominations beginning December 1 for the 2024 race to choose a delegate to travel from North America to Europe.

The winner will attend the 2024 Worldcon in Glasgow, being held August 8-12, and visit fans in the UK and elsewhere.

Glasgow 2024 has confirmed that they will provide free membership and board to the winning fan. Past TAFF winner Geri Sullivan has been appointed Fan Fund Liaison by the convention committee.

Sandra Bond, incoming European TAFF administrator, says that nominations will close on January 7, 2024. Then the ballot forms will then be circulated throughout fandom and voting will continue until April 2. Votes must be accompanied by a minimum payment of £3 (GBP), €3 (EUR), or $4 (USD), and any fan may vote who’s been active in fandom since April 2022 or earlier.

To stand for TAFF a fan needs to do the following:

  • Get three nominators from North America, and two nominators from Europe;
  • Submit a bond of (UK) £10, (US) $20, or (EU) €12;
  • Provide a platform to go on the ballot, of 101 words or fewer, saying why folks should vote for you.
  • Send those things to a TAFF Administrator by email or post.
