The Fan Quality Awards were formalized by the editors of Halkan Council and awarded in conjunction with SeKwester*Con, Too in 1977, and awarded to work within Star Trek fandom only. As SF/Media fandom grew, so have the Fan Q Awards.
T'Kuhtian Press has sponsored the Fan Q Awards through T'Con (1978) and 2'Con (1979), and through MediaWest*Con since 1981.
You do not have to be a member of MediaWest*Con to nominate or vote for Fan Q's.
Jan Keeler (of Wizard Works) is the Fan Q coordinator. She can be e-mailed at email@example.com
Artist awards go to the artists (not a specific work). Story and Poem/Filk awards go to the authors of specific works. 'Zine and Nonfiction 'Zine awards go to the editors of specific works; Stand-alone 'Zine awards may go to either authors or editors of specific works, as applicable. There are no categories applicable to publishers.
Certificates are awarded at MediaWest*Con; certificates for non-attending winners may be passed on through those in attendance or by mail.
A minimum of three (3) nominations and at least two (2) different competitors in each Fandom Category are required to qualify an item for the final ballot; however, only the top five (5) nominated items in each Fandom Category will appear on the Final Ballot (more in the case of a tie in nominations).
Those who receive three nominations but do not meet the competition requirement to make the ballot are listed as Honorable Mentions, and also receive certificates.
Due to a lack of Fan Q nominations, there was no 2019 Fan Q ballot, and so no Fan Q Awards at MW*C 39.
