Jump to: navigation, search

The Australian Science Fiction Media Awards (ASFMA Awards) were awards given annually for achievement in non-literary media and media appreciation within Australian science fiction. They were awarded at the Australian National Science Fiction Media Convention, from 1984 to 1997. The award was formally dissolved and incorporated into the Ditmar Awards at the Business Meeting of the Australian National Science Fiction Convention, Spawncon II in Melbourne in 1999, with the formal merger of the Australian "Media Natcon" and the Natcon.
