The Aurealis Awards, established in 1995 by Chimaera Publications, the publishers of Aurealis magazine, aim to recognise the achievements of Australian science fiction, fantasy and horror writers.
These awards are intended to expand the scope of other awards by recognising writers in varying categories of speculative fiction, rather than addressing the genre as a whole.
The shortlist for the 2010 awards was announced earlier this week, and the winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in Sydney in May 2011.
