Peter McNamara Achievement Award

The Peter McNamara Achievement Award is given to a professional in the Australian science fiction field “in remembrance of the life and contribution of Peter Trevor McNamara.”

The award was initially administered by Robert N. Stephenson, whose idea it was, prior to Peter's widow, Mariann McNamara, taking over both funding and administration.

This award should not be confused with the Peter McNamara Convenors' Award that is an Aurealis Award.

As there has been some confusion as to the history of this award, it is worth noting that there are two years associated with each award.
