After a very close race with four excellent candidates, it is a pleasure to announce that the 2017 NAFF (National Australian Fan Fund) delegate is FE WATERS! Fe will attend Natcon at Continuum in Melbourne in June.
Hailing from WA, Fe has been involved in fandom since she was dragged to the UniSFA room in 1990. She’s been attending Swancon since 1995, and was part of Gynaecon (the con within a con) from the beginning. After being inspired by the kids’ programming at AussieCon IV, Fe took on organising the Family Programme for Swancon 2011–2013.
In recognition of her efforts for the Family Programme, she was awarded the Mumfan (Marge Hughes) Award in 2013. In 2016 she was the Fan Guest of Honour at Swancon. This was also the year that the Gynaecon Collective was awarded the Silver Swan.
Nominated by: Stephanie Bateman-Graham (WA), Ju Landéesse (VIC) and Sarah Parker (WA).
