The Janusz A. Zajdel Award (Nagroda imienia Janusza A.

The winners are chosen in a vote by fans present at the Polcon convention from up to five nominations in each of two categories:
  • Novel: works longer than 100 standard pages (of 1800 characters),
  • Short story: shorter works.

Instant-runoff voting with "No award" as one of the choices is the method used. Vote counts are not announced.

History

The award was created in 1985 under the name Sfinks (English: Sphinx). After the fist winner Janusz A. Zajdel's death in the same year the name was changed in his memory.

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.

Winners

The year given is the year of publication. Since 1992 the first row is a novel, the second one - a short story.
