2022 Sir Julius Vogel Award finalists announced

SFFANZ is pleased to announce the finalists for the 2022 Sir Julius Vogel Awards. Congratulations to all our finalists.

Ordinarily, voting for the awards would occur at our national convention, but as there is no national convention this year, voting will be conducted via email and post. Voting will open on May 1 and close on May 31. Details of the presentation ceremony will be released in due course. Please note that you must be a member of SFFANZ to vote for the Sir Julius Vogel awards this year.

All Finalists have been asked to provide links either to their works or, if this is not possible, to descriptions or reviews. We include below all the links that we have received. We will continue to update this page as more information is made available to us.

The SJV Voter Packet will be available in a few weeks. Details will be at the page for 2022 SJV Finalists.
