Established by the Russian State Library for Young Adults (RSLYA) in 2015, the Reader's Prize is the first literature award within the Russian library community. Recipients of the prize are authors of the best book, which is identified by having the highest circulation at the Russian State Library for Young Adults (RSLYA) and e-store LitRes, and by vote of the Expert Council, whose members are drawn from the library's readers age 16-35.
In March 2016, Vadim Panov, a famous Moscow science fiction writer, received the first Reader's Prize at the RosKon Science Fiction Festival. In 2017, Guzel Yakhina received the Reader's Prize for her novel “Zuleykha Opens Eyes” at the Non/Fiction Book Fair.
