2019 FAAn Awards

The 2019 FAAn Awards were presented on May 4, 2019 at Corflu 36 in Rockville, Maryland and were administered by Michael Dobson and Curt Phillips.

2019 had an unusually large number of categories — probably more than twice as many as any other year — with many "traditional" categories being split into two or three. (The FAAn Awards do not have a formal set of categories.)
