WorldCon Site Selection - Filings

This page contains the formal filings from each bidder for the 2015 Worldcon and the 2014 NASFiC. For information on how to submit a site selection ballot, see the main Site Selection page.

As part of the WSFS Constitution, each bidder needs to formally announce its intent to bid; provide evidence of an agreement with the proposed facilities; and confirm the rules under which the organizing committee will operate. Bidders are also free to provide additional submissions to support their bid.

Each bidder has also been invited to a standard set of "Fannish Inquisition" style questions about their bid, their host city, and their plans for the convention if they win. Please refer to the main Site Selection page for the bidder responses to these Frequently Asked Questions.
