Tin Duck Nominations Close Friday

Hi all,

We've extended the Tin Duck Nominations period to this Friday - 28th March.

If you know a Western Australian author, artist or producer, whether they be professional or not, why not recognise their talent and accomplishments by nominating them for a Tin Duck award?

Details at https://2014.swancon.com.au/content/article/87

Looking for inspiration on who to nominate? A national list, for the Ditmars, is available at http://wiki.sf.org.au/2013_Ditmar_eligibility_list - you could always use it to look for Western Australians. If someone's missing from that list, you can also add them and they could be nominated for a Ditmar award!

Nominations via email to awards-2014 (at) swancon.com.au by midnight (WST) this Friday (Mar 28th).

prk.

Thankyou, swancon community

My daughter has been attending swancon since she was born...so far she's clocked up 10 years.
Yesterday, she received an offer of a place in a gifted and talented visual arts program at one of the two completely selective schools in Perth. Its quite a big deal for her future academic/artistic self. I don't think that this would have happened without the support of the swancon community.
She draws dragons. Thanks to swancon, she's tediously obsessed with dragons. She's won the kids art show prize for about six years in a row. She takes it very seriously, practicing drawing dragons all year for the art show. Her dragon drawing practice has led her to develop skills in shading, perspective, proportion, sketching, imagination and so on. The portfolio we took to the interview at the school was her dragon drawings for swancon.

So, we are very grateful to the swancon community for supporting her, voting for her drawings and generally being positive about her art. Thankyou you all for your kindness. Thankyou for your gift of support and validation.

Swancon Gaming Survey - Win Games !

My final duty as 2013 gaming coordinator is a happy one: I have games donated as prizes by Milsims that didn't arrive until after the con, to give away.

If you attended the Swancon gaming room this year and you'd like the chance to win a game, simply complete a short survey - the results will be passed on to 2014 to assist their planning.
