New Children’s Awards in China

The Xingyun (“Nebula”) Awards for Chinese science fiction have expanded to include works for children. The new awards were originally intended to launch in 2020, but were postponed until this year due to the pandemic.

The City of Ants by Ma Shuansi won the 2020 award for Best Children’s Science Fiction Novel, and China Orbit by Wu Yan was the winner for 2021. Other awards were presented for short fiction, essays, popular science, and SF for teens and younger readers.

The awards were presented October 22, 2021 in Chongqing, China during the World Chinese Science Fiction Association annual convention, in a ceremony held the day before the 12th Annual Xingyun Awards, as previously announced.
