Aurealis Awards weekend

Well, the Aurealis Awards are over for another year (and just about to start over again, but let’s not talk about that now!). I’ve just spent a great afternoon and evening in Sydney with friends, colleagues and the spec fic community, at the AAs ceremony, wonderfully hosted by SpecFaction NSW. It was a night of glitz and glam (nice frocking up people!), great conversations, catching up and meeting new people. And awards! It was my great pleasure to help present the Galactic Suburbia team with the Peter McNamara Convenors’ Award for Excellence, and also to see Thoraiya Dyer claim the gong for Best Fantasy Short Story for the second year in a row, this time for a FableCroft story! Yay Thoraiya!

I took lots of photos – Cat Sparks has our community well trained. You point a camera at them and they pose! My photos are here.

So it was fun! Thanks SpecFaction for a great night and well done to all the creators recognised!

Thoraiya and her award! (with bonus Richard Harland)
