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, also known as the Convenor's Award for Excellence.
