It was fun to be nominated for GUFF (Going Under Fan Fund, sending a delegate from Europe to Australasia). I don't have many contacts in international fandom yet, and therefore didn't know how to campaign. For the same reason I didn't expect to win.
But now, we make a GUFF losers fanzine! More news about this later, watch this space.
Anyway, as Ylva Spångberg says: "Sverifandom exists!" We have become a little more visible to English speaking fandom, and GUFF has certainly had much more publicity in Sweden than earlier years. All are happy.
