BristolCon Foundation

The BristolCon Foundation aims to encourage the creation and enjoyment of Speculative Fiction, in all its forms, with a focus on the West Country and South Wales. BristolCon does not set out to make a profit, but any left over funds are used to provide grants or loans of up to 250 for projects that further the BristolCon Foundation's aims. Such projects could include but are not limited to helping to

  • run speculative fiction workshops
  • support launches to do with speculative fiction
  • bring new creators to the genre
  • providing promotions for speculative fiction in all its forms

If you have a project that could benefit from such a grant or loan, please contact MEG at with the following information:

  • your name
  • your e-mail address
  • title of your project
  • a brief description of the project - ideally no more than a paragraph
  • when that project will take place/ be completed
  • where that project will take place
  • what benefit will that project give to the speculative fiction community in the West Country and South Wales
  • the amount of money being requested and whether you want it as a grant or a loan (limit is 250)
  • when you need an answer by from the BristolCon Foundation

All applications should be made at least eight weeks before the grant or loan is required in order to give chance for the committee to consider them. We may be able to fast-track applications but that will be dependent on the availability of the committee to respond to such requests.
