Membership Types

When you buy a ticket to Nullus Anxietas VI, you are also purchasing membership to the convention - we want everyone to be involved in a fundamental way. You don't simply attend Nullus Anxietas, you absorb it, and it emanates from you. In a very real sense the convention just wouldn't be the same without you. We hope that you will join us to make Nullus Anxietas VI that much better!

Attending Membership

A ticket purchased for an attending membership allows you to:

  • Be listed on the Membership List.
    • To be listed as 'Hidden', please check the appropriate box when purchasing your ticket.
  • Attend all days of the Australian Discworld Convention at the convention venue.
  • Receive a membership badge to be worn at the convention.
  • Receive a convention bag with various goodies and information on arrival and registration at the convention.
  • Receive a souvenir convention programme booklet, with information about convention events and other fun stuff.
  • Access to all events on the convention programme timetable, with no extra cost - except for:
    • Gala Dinner - attending members may purchase a ticket to the Gala Dinner for an extra cost.
    • Post-convention Tours - attending members may purchase a ticket to the Tours for an extra cost.
  • Note: some events on the programme may have limited numbers (e.g. craft workshops, klatches) and entry to those events will be assigned based on attendees signing up at Ops.
    • Workshop places will generally be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
    • Klatch places will be assigned by a random draw (but you will need to say which ones you want to attend).
  • The ability to purchase (via pre-order) special convention attendee-only souvenir merchandise, such as t-shirts.

Supporting Membership

Buying a supporting membership helps to support running the convention, and also acts as a holding deposit for your place at the convention. However, it does not enable you to attend unless you choose to upgrade. 

Buy your supporting membership here.

To attend the convention, a supporting membership must be upgraded to an attending membership by paying the difference between the supporting membership price and the membership price at the time that you purchased your supporting membership. In this way, you can buy a supporting membership during the early bird sale period, and upgrade it later and still pay the early bird price.

You may upgrade in a single payment or by paying several set-price installments. The upgrade from supporting to attending membership will close on 21st July 2017.

Your membership number (e.g. S14) is allocated as a supporter, and if you choose to upgrade, you'll keep the same number (e.g. it will become A14)!

Upgrading from four supporting memberships to a family ticket is not available via our shop. Please contact the Membership officer if this situation applies to you.

Upgrade your supporting membership here.

Supporting members who are unable to upgrade and attend the convention will be posted a copy of the Convention Programme afterwards. (Note: postage within Australia is included. If you are overseas, we will contact you to discuss postage options and costs.)
