Long Barracks, The Alamo>> 2017 World Fantasy Awards Judges

Price increase June 1, 2017: $275

In 2017, the World Fantasy Convention℠ will be held deep in the Heart of Texas along the San Antonio River and the world famous Riverwalk. We hope you can join us and enjoy this unique city. Known for the Alamo (UNESCO World Heritage Site), the city of San Antonio has many other attractions including a world class zoo, art and history museums, four other missions and dozens of historical buildings, San Antonio Spurs basketball, river cruises, golf, swimming, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Sea World, shopping, dancing, carousing and history wherever you turn.

Most notable is the Riverwalk. Spend the days walking along this lazy river scene and stop whenever you tire to have a meal and a margarita.

The weather in November is very mild and pleasant. The high is usually around 75° and the low is usually around 50°.

The World Fantasy Awards Administration and the Board of the World Fantasy Convention are delighted to announce that a new design has been chosen for the World Fantasy Award after a year-long public competition, which attracted a great many artists of extremely high caliber.

It was a tough choice: the Awards Administration received a lot of entries, and at least half a dozen designs which would have made wonderful Award statuettes. However, by unanimous decision of the Administration, we have selected the model produced by award-winning sculptor and artist Vincent Villafranca (www.villafrancasculpture.com). The sculptor will be attending the 2017 WFC in San Antonio, Texas, where the awards will be presented for the first time.
