Quite some time ago I asked Cheryl Morgan if I could help out with this site. She assigned me the task of gathering images of the various awards so that visitors could actually see what was being given away.
It was a task that others had not had much success with previously. My results were about the same: a bunch of emails sent out, a lot of nothing coming back.
I’ve begun the process of rectifying that but this time I’m doing so without the need to ‘bother’ anyone. I’m searching for various award images on the web and cropping out the awards.
The results are not awe-inspiring, but they are better than nothing.
I believe that such usage is covered under the educational sections of the fair use laws. If you disagree (and one of your images has been used) and wish to have your imagery removed, nothing could be simpler than asking. All such requests will be honored.
It would be nice, however, if in requesting that an image be taken down, you were to supply a (better) usable one.
It also occurred to me that it would be nice to see images of the WINNERS of these awards, WITH their awards. So authors, artists, editors and fans, if you have a picture of an award recipient (and permission), why not think about sending me a copy. I’ll be happy to link the image to your website or other designated location.
