Are You Eligible to Nominate?
If you were a member of World Fantasy Con last year (2010, Columbus, Ohio) or in 2009 (San Jose), or are a member this year (2011, San Diego), you are eligible to nominate.
WFC mailed out paper ballots last month to last year’s members and to this year’s members along with Progress Report #2. The ballot is also downloadable from the WFC 2011 website.
Deadline to Nominate:
Ballots must be postmarked or emailed by May 31, 2011.
How to Nominate:
Download the ballot from the WFC 2011 website or use the paper one they mailed you, fill it out, and either mail or email it to the address listed on the ballot. By May 31, 2011.
What BCS Stories are Eligible:
Everything published in 2010, which is BCS Issue #34 through Issue #59, inclusive.
