We are looking for photos from Tiptree Award ceremonies that did not take place at WisCon, specifically these conventions:

Readercon 7, Worcester, MA, 1994: Photos of the Tiptree ceremony, especially of winner, Nicola Griffith. We already have excellent images of the art award, but we would love to have photos of the Tiptree auction — since it was the historic, first auction featuring Ellen Klages as auctioneer. We’d also want a photo of Nicola being serenaded by the Tiptree Chorus.

  • Potlatch 4, Oakland, CA, 1995: Photos of the Tiptree ceremony, especially of winner, Nancy Springer and the art award she received — a feathered mask created by Michaela Roessner.
  • Readercon 10, Westborough, MA, 1998: Photos of the Tiptree ceremony, especially of winners, Candas Jane Dorsey and Kelly Link and the art awards they received — a painted silk scarf with images fromĀ Black Wine (Candas), and a snowglobe (Kelly). Both art awards were created by Ellen Klages. We’d also love a photo of the winners being serenaded by the Tiptree chorus.
  • International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts (ICFA) 20, Ft. Lauderdale FL, 1999. Photos of the Tiptree ceremony, especially of winner, Raphael Carter and the art award Raphael received — an intersex doll created by Melissa M. O’Grady. We have no record as to whether Raphael was serenaded by the Tiptree Chorus, but if that did happen, we would love to have some visual evidence.
  • Readercon 14, Boston, MA, 2001. Photos of the Tiptree ceremony, especially of winner, Hiromi Goto, including any of Hiromi being serenaded by the Tiptree chorus. (We already have excellent images of the art award.)
  • Gaylaxicon, Boston, MA. Photos of the Tiptree ceremony, especially of winners, Johanna Sinisalo and Joe Haldeman, including any of the winners being serenaded by the Tiptree chorus. (We already have excellent images of the art awards.)

Thank you!
