About VCON: Vancouver's Annual Convention of Science Fiction and Fantasy.
VCON is the oldest general-interest science fiction and fantasy convention in Canada and the Pacific Northwest. The convention has promoted the interests of science fiction and fantasy fan culture in Vancouver BC and its environs since 1971, offering events and exhibits focused on a variety of Science Fiction and Fantasy fandom interest areas such as literature, art, media, music, costumes, comics, games, etc.
VCON is organized by a subcommittee of the West Coast Science Fiction Association a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and understanding of science fiction and fantasy fan culture in Vancouver BC and its environs. VCON is not, nor will it ever be, owned by a big business or corporation. For now and for as long as efforts continue VCON will be a convention built "For the Fans, By the Fans".
About Canvention: The Canadian National Speculative Fiction Convention.
Canvention is the home of the Auroras, Canada's national awards for the best in Canadian Speculative Fiction and Art. The convention itself is usually held in conjunction with an existing convention, alternating between one held in the east and one held in the west. The 2014 event will be hosted at VCON 39 in Vancouver, BC. The nominations for and winners of the Auroras are determined by the members of the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Association (CSFFA) which is open to any Canadian citizen.
