June 18th 2014 - ALAA Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony to be Presented at RainFurrest 2014
RainFurrest is pleased to announce it will be hosting 2014 ALAA Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony at RF2014.
The ALAA Hall of Fame Award was started in 2012 to honor people who were crucial to the formation of furry fandom as what it is today, for example, Walt Disney, or fictional characters like Bugs Bunny, or just plain things like the novel Watership Down by Richard Adams. An honoree could be a writer, artist, a favorite anthro animal character, a book, a movie, TV series, or someone or something else that usually you don't think of, until somebody mentions their name and most people will say, "Oh, yeah, sure -- how could we have overlooked him, or her, or it?"
In 2012 the ALAA honored, Walt Disney, Bugs Bunny, and Richard Adams' Watership Down were honored. In 2013 the ALAA honored, the novella Animal Farm by George Orwell, the novel Pride of Chanur by C. J. Cherryh, and the 1973 animated movie "Robin Hood" by the Walt Disney Studios.
In 2014, three more honorees will be inducted to Hall of Fame.
