History

This was the first time a convention was officially both the Australian National Convention and the Australian National Media Convention.

The Constantinople conbook describes Constantinople as the 33rd National Science Fiction Convention and the 14th National Media Convention. Progress Report 5, dated March 1993 had described Constantinople as the 33rd Australian National Science Fiction Convention and 12th Australasian Science Fiction Media Convention. Perhaps it was recalled that not all the Australian SF Media Natcons had been officially Australasian in scope, but overlooked that the ones that hadn't were already included in the count of 12.
