    2014 PLATFORMS

    Alison Barton

    Involved in fandom since the early 90s, Iíve helped run several conventions (including Convergence 1 & 2, Continuum 1,2 & 3, and Conjecture). I chaired the Melbourne Science Fiction Club for many years, running well over 100 events, movie nights and fundraisers, supporting them through thick and thin (and the packing of soooo many books!) In 2003 I started the annual Melbourne Minicons with Austrek, Starwalking and the DWCV. I served on the first 3 Continuum Convention committees and the founding committee for Continuum Foundation. Oh, and Iíve written a few articles and edited the occasional fanzine too.

    Alisonís nominators are Emma Hawkes, Damien Warman, Rose Mitchell, Ang Rosin and Johan Anglemark

    Samara Morgan

    My first con was Swancon 2008, and since then I've attended five Swancons and will be running my sixth! I've been active in Fandom since then and joined many committees. I'm on the WASFF Board since 3 years ago as well as being on 2 Waicon and 4 Genghiscon committees. I love organizing conventions and would love the chance to meet fans outside of Australia. I met such wonderful people at AussieCon 4 and had such an amazing time I'd love to go to another WorldCon. I've always dreamed of going to London and Loncon. Please help me get there!

    Samaraís nominators are Brendan Ragan, Sarah Parker, Kitty Byrne, Lisa Konrad and Jocelyn Konrad-Lee

    Gillian Polack

    I love conventions and fandom and quiet chats in bars. I also love volunteering and panels and workshops. Mostly, I enjoy meeting new friends. Iíve been (quietly) a fan since joining MUSFA in 1979 and (more noisily) a Canberra fan since 2002. Iím the Australia/NZ correspondent for Europa SF. I was on the Conflux committee for seven years (but only designed five banquets) and am sometimes a writer, sometimes an editor, sometimes an academic, always a fan. Before and after LonCon, Iíd love to meet fans in Europe. I especially want to attend Shamrokon and Finncon. I will have chocolate.

    Gillianís nominators are Ross Temple, Gene Melzack, Bruce Gillespie, Ben Roimola and Petra Bulic

    Shay Telfer

    was inducted into fandom by the likes of Doctor Who, Blakes 7, Diana Wynne Jones, John Wyndham, Douglas Adams and H.G. Wells, eventually joining the University of Western Australia's Science Fiction Association, UniSFA, where he discovered he was not alone. From there he heard about Swancon which he's been attending ever since, and convened in 2004 before taking some time to help raise another generation of SF fans. He has attended local and Worldcons in Australia, and would love to have the opportunity to add some Australian flavour to Loncon 3 and Shamrokon as the GUFF delegate.
