The Galaxy Award[1] (Chinese: 银河奖; pinyin: Yínhé Jiǎng) is China's most prestigious science fiction award,[2] which was started in 1986[3] by the magazines Tree of Wisdom (Chinese: 《智慧树》; pinyin: Zhìhuì Shù) and Science Literature & Art (Chinese: 《科学文艺》; pinyin: Kēxué Wényì). After Tree of Wisdom ceased publication soon afterwards, the award was organized solely by Science Literature & Art, which was renamed to Science Fiction World (Chinese: 《科幻世界》) in 1991.[citation needed]

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;[citation needed],[4] in November 2017, the 28th award ceremony was held in Chengdu, China.[3]
