The Kurd Laßwitz Preis is a literature award for German-language science fiction that is awarded annually in up to eight categories. The other winners were announced earlier this year. For the Kurd Laßwitz Award radio category, the radio play jury (eight radio play authors, directors and radio play experts) selected the finalists. The winner was decided after a runoff due to close ranking of the first two nominations.
The award ceremony is planned as part of the 16th ElsterCon, which will take place this year the third weekend in September in Leipzig.
