Amateur SF Competitions

Since 1992, the Australian Science Fiction Foundation (ASFF) has provided sponsorship funds to the Australian National Science Fiction Convention (The Natcon) to run an Amateur Science Fiction competition. Originally the competition was for short stories but may now also encompass work created on digital media (short films or audio productions).

We have prepared a set of guidelines that may assist the convention committee in running an amateur SF competition, particularly if they haven’t run a competition before.

For more information about how your convention can participate please contact the ASFF secretary
