Con or Bust is an American fan fund created to assist People of Colour to attend SFF conventions. It’s an excellent project funded entirely through donations and an annual online auction, and we at No Award are very excited that it has come to Australia.
Contact, the 2016 NatCon (this year in Brisbane), has donated two memberships, and there is up to $550 of assistance available for accommodation.
The catch: if you need assistance beyond membership and accommodation — ie, airfare — the deadline for applying is before 11:59 pm, Thursday 25 February, US Eastern Standard Time. (Yes, my fellow lolstralians, that is working out in our favour, thank you, time zones.)
Go forth, lolstralians of a non-white persuasion, and apply!!

Stephanie says: Liz will be attending NatCon as the NAFF delegate, so you should definitely find her and yell with her.
