Janusz A. Zajdel AwardThe Janusz A. Zajdel Award (Nagroda imienia Janusza A. Zajdla), often called just Zajdel, is the annual award given by the Polish science fiction fandom for the best stories published during the previous year. The winners are chosen in a vote by fans present at the Polcon convention from up to five nominations in each of two categories:

Until 1989 the award was given by Polish science fiction fan associations voting as units, since 1990 all fans present at Polcon can vote. Until 1991 there was a single award given for the best story, since 1992 there are two categories.
The year given is the year of publication. Since 1992 the first row is a novel, the second one - a short story.
