This are the SF State Awards. I heard an anecdote back about when it was originally being devised it was given this irreverent name to satirize the "Silver Swan"  award which was considered by the people devising the Tin Ducks as being rather a pretentious name.

That's how the story went anyway, that I hear years ago at Swancon 14 I think it was.

Huh, didn't really think I had much of a chance, really, it was black and white and people are so seduced by colour.

No Tin Ducks were harmed...
