The Galaxy Award[1] (Chinese:银河奖, pinyin: yín hé jiǎng) is China's most prestigious[2] science fiction award, which was started in 1986[3] by the magazines Zhihui Shu (Tree of Wisdom) and Kexue Shijie (Science Literature and Art). The award is now organized solely by the magazine Kehuan Shijie (Science Fiction World), a rebranding Kexue Shijie.[4]

The structure of the prize has evolved over time, becoming an annual prize in 1991 and has recognized different categories over time.

In September 2016, the 27th galaxy award was held at the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics;[4][5], in November 2017, the 28th award ceremony was held in Chengdu, China.[3]
