2015 FAAn Awards Voting Opens

The Fan Activity Achievement (FAAn) awards honor the best in fanwriting, fanzine art, publishing and posting. The awards are voted on by the fanzine fans of the world and presented at the Corflu banquet.

The voting season for 2015 has just started. The ballot can be downloaded from the Corflu website. Votes can be cast by e-mail or on paper – the instructions are on the ballot — and must be received by Saturday March 14.

FAAns are given for the Best Genzine, Best Personal Fanzine, Best Single Issue, Best Fan Writer, Best Fan Artist, Best Letterhack, Best Fanzine Cover, and Best Fan Website.

A gallery of 2014 fanzine covers has been posted on eFanzines by the ever-helpful Bill Burns.

Winners will be announced at Tynecon III: The Corflu, taking place March 27-29 in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
