BLACK HOLE AWARDS
— Spoof fannish awards first created and presented by US fan Matthew Tepper in 1973. Somewhat similar to the Canadian ELRONS (created 1971). Categories include: ‘Incompetence’, ‘Greed’, ‘Half-assed Con Officiousness’ & the ‘Brown Hole Award for Outstanding Professionalism.’ The actual award consists of a plastic black sphere subtly different depending on the nature of the award.
