Voting for the British Fantasy Awards is now open and will close on 31 March 2012.
The new constitution for the awards may be found here:http://www.britishfantasysociety.co.uk/the-british-fantasy-awards-constitution-ii/
Members of the BFS (votes cast by a member whose membership expires after the vote is cast remain valid), members of FantasyCon 2011 and members of FantasyCon 2012 who register before voting closes on 31 March 2012 are eligible and encouraged to vote for works published for the first time in the English language in any part of the world in any format during the calendar year January to December 2011.
Each member may put forward up to three Recommendations in any category, expressed in preferential order. All Recommendations should ideally be accompanied with publication details: year of publication, publisher, and title of collection, magazine, editor, etc, if applicable.
Recommendations may not be made for the recommenderís own material. The British Fantasy Society discourages the practice of canvassing for votes.
The four titles or names with the highest number of Recommendations will go forward to form the shortlist of nominations.
In the case of the award for Best Novel, members are invited to list up to three Recommendations in the categories of Horror and Fantasy.
The voting form is available here:http://bfawards.britishfantasysociety.co.uk/index.php?sid=94577
Thank you for voting and please spread the word! Postal voting forms are available by request from the Awards Administrator.
