So I have returned home to a week I have just blocked out as “comedown”. I’m tired, jetlagged and missing new friends I made on the trip. However, something exciting got announced yesterday that I’ve been keeping quiet for a couple of weeks… I’m on a jury for the British Fantasy Awards, specifically the jury for Best Film / Television Episode. For obvious reasons I won’t be talking about the work I’m doing for it, but I’m both thrilled and honoured to be asked and hope we do the award proud.
Details below the cut.
The juries for the British Fantasy Awards 2014 are as follows:
Best Fantasy Novel (the Robert Holdstock Award)
Best Horror Novel (the August Derleth Award)
Best Short Story
Ole Andreas Imsen
Best Small Press
Best Comic/Graphic Novel
Best Film/Television Episode
Best Newcomer (the Sydney J. Bounds Award)
The juries for the British Fantasy Awards are appointed by the Awards Administrator (Stephen Theaker) under the supervision of the British Fantasy Society committee. The BFS committee itself is the jury for the Special Award (the Karl Edward Wagner Award).
The juries have begun the process of deciding whether to add any egregious omissions to the nominees decided by the voters of the British Fantasy Society and FantasyCon. We hope to announce the resulting shortlists at the British Fantasy Society Open Night on 6 June 2014.
The juries will then go on to decide the winners of the awards, to be announced atFantasyCon 2014, which takes place in York on 5–7 September 2014.
