If you are a member of SpecFicNZ with a work you would like added to the above list, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (subject line SJV Work) with details of the work and we will gladly add it. We don’t know you have a qualifying work unless you tell us.
And again, this list is not associated with the running and process of the SJV awards. This is not a list of nominees, only a list of works that qualify for nomination. They aren’t nominees until you officially nominate them using the process outlined HERE. SpecFicNZ does not make nominations. We simply wanted to provide you with a list of works by our members that you could read and possibly nominate.
We do hope you nominate them by the deadline of March 31st, 2012.
