Members may already be aware that nominations are now open for the BSFA Awards until January 31st.
We have made some changes to the nominations process, limiting the number of nominations members can make in each category to just 4, and so we thought it would be useful to also have a suggestions form where anyone can make suggestions for things that are eligible for nomination.
The form to make your suggestions is located here.
Items, as they come in, will be listed here.
We will add a link for this suggestions list and form to the Awards page.
Who can make suggestions?
Absolutely anyone, and it doesn’t even matter if you have an interest in the category. You can be the writer, illustrator or publisher. You can be the suggested person’s mum. Or, you can just be someone who has read and loved a book, story or article, or seen a cover you liked the look of. You don’t have to be a BSFA member to suggest anything either. This list is there to give BSFA members an idea of what may be eligible. It will not influence the results in any other way than making sure that BSFA members can see your suggested item in a list, making it less likely for them to forget about it.
Items will appear in the list almost immediately after you have clicked submit, and we will need to check and tidy them up when we can. Do let us know if you see anything amiss that we don’t seem to have tidied up in a timely manner – there’s a corrections section to the form.
Our immense gratitude goes to member Stephen Theaker who helped us put this form together.
