If you need help with what to nominate, Eidolon.net is a fantastic
source of information pertaining to Australian Science Fiction.
Comprehensive lists of 2002 publications have been assembled for
book-length (http://eidolon.net/yearinprint/) and short fiction

Please feel free to pass this email onto other lists within the
Australian SF community so that we can reach as many fans as possible.
Remember that nominators are winners too as you ultimately help decide
who wins the awards - if they are not nominated, they can't win!
I look forward to your nominations.
