FAAn Awards Voting is now open,
and will close on 10 March 2023

Nic Farey's The Incompleat Register 2022 is published as a FAAn Award voters’ guide and should not be considered to be a definitive list of what you can and cannot vote for. My sources are primarily Bill Burns’, Guy Lillian’s listzine ‘The Zine Dump’ and also paper zines and pdfs (or links) personally received. As I can’t possibly be aware of everything, all votes received will be counted in good faith, subject to proper categorization.

Voting is open to anyone with an interest in fanzines, no memberships of anything are required, and ballots should be received by midnight (PST) Friday, March 10, 2023

For full details of the awards, and the incompleat list of eligible work, please read this year’s issue at the link above.
