Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Golden Rooster Awards are the most prestigious awards in film given in mainland China. The awards are given annually, beginning in 1981. The name of the award came from the year of the Rooster in 1981. Award recipients receive a statuette in the shape of a golden rooster, and are selected by a jury of film makers, film experts, and film historians. The awards are given out by the China Film Association. Originally, Golden Roosters were only available to mainland Chinese nominees, but in 2005, the awards opened up the acting categories to actors from Taiwan, Hong Kong, and elsewhere in an effort to compete with Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards. The entire event is actually composed of a film festival and an awards ceremony. Originally the film festival consisted of two distinct events, the Golden Rooster festival, and a separate festival for the Hundred Flowers Awards. The two festivals were combined into a single national festival in 1992
