Ursa Major Awards nominations now open
Nominations (up to five in each category) for the 2003 Ursa Major Awards for the best anthropomorphic literature and art of 2002 in nine categories, to be presented at ConFurence 2003 in April 2003, are now open. They will remain open until January 7, 2003, when they will close so the nominations can be counted and the voting ballot prepared. The voting ballot will contain the five highest nominees in each category.
Nominations are to cover anthropomorphic motion pictures, TV programs, fiction, artwork, publications and games first published during the calendar year from January 1 through December 31, 2002. See the 2002 Recommended Anthropomorphic Reading/Viewing List at http://www.flayrah.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=1155&mode=thread&order=0&thold=0 for the specific categories, and for some recommendations in each category. Nominations are not limited to titles on the Reading/Viewing List if you wish to nominate something else that is eligible.
There is no nomination form. Simply send your nominations by letter (postmarked by January 7, 2003) to:

And remember: the Ursa Major Awards are meant for all Furry fandom. Eligibility is international, not just for what is released in the U.S., North America, or Great Britain. There are Furry novels, comic books and fanzines published during 2002 in Australia, Canada, Britain, and elsewhere that have not been published in the U.S.; they are all eligible. And participation is wanted from fans everywhere, not just ConFurence members. E.mail or snail-mail us if you have any questions, suggestions, complaints, and ideas on how to improve them.
