The 2015 Xingyun (Nebula) Award for Global Chinese Science Fiction was announced Sunday in Chengdu, with the best achievement prize awarded to Liu Cixin, the first Asian writer to win "Best Novel" at the 2015 Hugo Award.

Liu won the Hugo prize with his most popular work, "The Three-Body Problem." It was translated into English by American Chinese writer Ken Liu and published by Tor Books in November 2014.

According to Dong Renwei, one of the founders of Xingyun Award and a sci-fi writer, this year's event for the first time set up a prize for sci-fi film screenplay, which went to "Mist," written by Wang Kanyu and Wu Shuang.

The annual event, the only international awards for Chinese-language sci-fi writers, is organized by the Chengdu-based World Chinese Science Fiction Association.

Over 40,000 readers voted for the 12 prizes of this year's Xingyun Award. More than 1,000 sci-fi writers and readers from China and abroad attended the awarding ceremony.
