Shimmer Program For Chinese Fans

Storycom has again set up the Shimmer Program to encourage “2 active Chinese fans” to attend the 76th World Science Fiction Convention, to be held at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose CA on August 16-20, 2018. The two selected individuals will each receive RMB 10,000 to cover travel expenses with the idea that “the beneficiaries should also volunteer to work for Worldcon 76 and promise to take active part in attending and organizing both domestic and international science fiction activities in the future.” Storycom ran a similar program to send Chinese fans to Worldcon 75 in 2017, held in Helsinki Finland.

For more information, including the rules for application, see the official Facebook announcement.
