Science Fiction Awards Watch

Yet another award deadline is coming up. If you are an ASFA member then you have until June 30th to vote in the Chesley Awards.

We have links to a large number of artist web sites here, though it isn’t always easy to tell from them what work is award-eligible. If anyone has put up a pimpage page, please let us know and we’ll link to it. For next year we’ll try to have something better available.

    I’d love to see illustrators drop comments here and let Chesley voters like me know where to find their eligible work. Would save a ton of time!! :)

    FYI: for ideas for the Best Hardcover and Best Paperback Cover Illustration, Mark Kelly’s database at Locus Online is a great place to start.

    There’s a ton of really worthy work out there, but for some Chesley categories, it’s hard to find artists’ works and then verify if they’re eligible for 2007 consideration. Sometimes I’ll find something I like on someone’s site and then email the artist and wait to hear back if the piece is eligible, which is time-consuming. For instance, a sculptor that I think is phenomenal is Vincent Villafranca. Love this guy’s stuff. I had to email him and ask him what’s eligible for the 3-D Illustration category, but I don’t have time to do that for everyone and for every category.

    My own page of eligible 2007 work can be found here, as well as in the sidebar of my blog.

    Looking forward to seeing other illustrators post here, especially for the unpublished categories, hopefully.

    Hi Cheryl- on this subject, this is my “works of 2007″ site that just has exactly that-2007 only and no wading through stuff-it’s all here at-covers sans type which is always the way to see things better and see only what was “published” in 2007:

    Hello Cheryl,

    John is making a good point. Four of my 2007 bronzes are on my homepage at:

    The sculptures are dated below the titles.

    Hope to meet you again at Denvention!

    With regards,
