The ballot for the 2014 GUFF delegate from Australasia to Europe is now available. You can read all about the race and the candidates here. There is also an online form over here which may be more convenient for New Zealand fans.
The winning candidate will attend Loncon Worldcon and possibly other events such as Shamrokon which is the Eurocon this year. Although GUFF is open to Kiwis, there are no New Zealand candidates this year although you may be able to spot one in the nominators lists.
What is GUFF? GUFF was created in 1979. Known as the Get Up-and-over Fan Fund or the Going Under Fan Fund, depending on which direction it’s running, GUFF exists to provide funds to enable well-known fans from Australasia and Europe to visit each other’s national (or other) conventions and to get to know each other’s fandoms better. GUFF, like other fan funds, exists solely through the support of fandom. The candidates for each trip are voted on by interested fans, and each vote is accompanied by a monetary donation. These votes, and the continuing generosity of fandom through auctions and other donations, are what make GUFF possible.
