Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2012
Nick T. Chan from Sydney, Australia will be honored at the 28th Annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement awards being held on Sunday, 15 April, 2012 at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre. The event will celebrate the twelve annual winners in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests, where Nick was the 2nd quarter, second place winner for this year. His winning story will also be published in the bestselling Science Fiction/Fantasy anthology series – L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXVIII.
Nick is a project manager and editor in postgraduate education and is an assistant editor on the ParsecInk Triangulation series of anthologies. In 2010 he set his sights on the Writers of the Future competition, after hearing of other Australian winners. After two honorable mentions and one non-winning finalist, in this contest, he won this year.
Nick and eleven other winners - including a housewife from Maryland, a aerospace designer from Pennsylvania, a rocket scientist from London, England, and a Dr. of Experimental Particle Physics from Washington state, will be treated to a week long workshop taught by the contest blue ribbon panel of judges lead by Tim Powers (On Stranger Tides), followed by the gala awards ceremony at the end of the week.
The Contests were initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 shortly after returning to the field of science fiction with his bestseller Battlefield Earth, and to date the contest has launched the careers of 8 New York Times bestselling authors.
