Erin Underwood has won the 2020 Down Under Fan Fund (DUFF), intended to send one fan from North America to CoNZealand, the 78th Worldcon. The fund is administered in North America by Paul Weimer and in Australia by Marlee Jane Ward. Weimer said,
With ConZealand being a virtual Worldcon this year and [COVID-19], Erin will not be traveling to New Zealand this year, but hopes to travel to Australasia in the DUFF tradition in 2021, health and world events permitting.
Underwood will also become the fund’s new North American administrator, taking over from Weimer. DUFF is open to anyone who has been “active in science fiction fandom” before the start of the previous year.
