Gods yearn to be believed in, that they might become powerful and influential. Belief is everything to them, and without it, they may stay small forever. From the God of Social Distancing to the God of Finding a Parking Space, some Gods find their own niches and fill the Belief Economy for many years undisturbed – Others want it all.

“All the sweetness of religion is conveyed to the world by the hands of storytellers and image-makers. Without their fictions the truths of religion would for the multitude be neither intelligible nor even apprehensible.” —萧伯纳

[Thanks to Science Fiction World，中国最influential sci-fi magazine, for providing this post. I feel the competition is newsworthy and the beautiful art is something you’ll want to see. However, running the item is not intended as an endorsement of the Chengdu Worldcon bid.]
该5日中国（成都）国际科幻大会kicked off on November 22, in which the list of winners for “Chengdu After 100 Years” Global Science Fiction Works Collection sponsored by Chengdu Association for Science and Technology was officially published and a grand award ceremony was held. These eye-opening sci-fi works greatly intrigue our expectations for Chengdu 100 years later.
“成都100年后”提供了舞台，为人们想象未来的成都市。它收集了来自世界各地的科幻作品，以及四组组奖项：科幻文学，科幻影片，科幻美术（成人）和科幻美术（儿童），具有绘制的普遍关注全世界科幻迷。在过去的三个月中，共有431幅文学作品，418美术作品和21个视频是从美国，意大利，日本，韩国等国家和地区接受。其中，Images: City of Taste or Taste of Cityby Yang Wanqing won the First Prize of Sci-Fi Literature,成都100年后由仇远荣获科幻美术一等奖（成人）和生活中航在成都100年后by Ji Shuyu won the First Prize of Sci-Fi Fine Arts (children). The First Prize of Sci-Fi Video remained vacant.
According to He Xi, Director of the Review Committee of “Chengdu After 100 Years” Global Science Fiction Works Collection, this one-of-a-kind event in China fully reflected Chengdu’s imaginative and innovative spirit and demonstrated the city charm of Chengdu as China’s “capital of science fiction”. Centering on the theme of science fiction, this global cultural dissemination activity would not only benefit the international publicity of Chengdu’s city image, but also promote Chengdu’s construction into “three cities and three capitals” (famous city of culture & creativity, tourism, and competition, and capital of delicacy, music, and convention and exhibition), thus significantly pushing the gathering of global science fiction resources to Chengdu. According to the organizing committee, the above-mentioned award-winning works will be stored for at least 100 years after being digitized. Chengdu people 100 years later will also learn today’s Chengdu people’s imagination of the future through these outstanding works.
Author’s conception:In order to preserve the 3,000 years of cultural history of Chengdu, the king in Bashu cultural mythology has been transformed into a “cuckoo”, the sunbird totem. Folk artists doing magical face-changing and fire spitting are also included in the picture, implying that the cultural inheritance will be immortal and exist in Chengdu 100 years later. Landmarks such as Yuanyang Taikoo Li Street, Radio & TV Tower and De Men Ren Li still stand in the technology-dominated Chengdu 100 years later, and the national treasure panda is still the symbol of the city. Super green antimagnetic buses, light energy-driven delivery robots, light speed trains and AI pandas offering consulting service everywhere bring us to the street scene of Chengdu 100 years later.
Author’s conception:When it comes to Chengdu, you can’t help but think of Sichuan hot pot. 100 years later, eating hot pot is still a part of people’s life. Chengdu will have developed into a hot pot city… A giant two-layer hot pot circled with a dragon becomes the new landmark of Chengdu. The smoky city is full of waterways that transport hot pot water, and people will take cruise ship to enjoy hot pot in various restaurants… 100 years later, Chengdu is full of cheerful air…
An Ideal City of Ease
Luo Ya, Sunny Day Studio
Author’s conception:100 years later, Chengdu boasts time-honored and enduring historical heritages (hot pot, Sichuan opera, Taoist culture, Taikoo Li, statue of Chairman Mao, TV Tower, landmark buildings, etc.). We never stop the pace to explore the world and update cognition (the picture shows high-dimensional space-timers, shuttles, high-speed traffic, new forms of energy transmission, etc.). Pandas stand for people living in Chengdu, fun, playful, with trueness. Technology and wisdom are achieved through games. The true meaning of the universe is constantly explored by Chengdu people.
Yang Shu, Freelancer
Author’s conception:100年与尖端科技的崛起ars, those future scenes in fantasy movies which seem distant have become reality. Chengdu influenced by Chinese culture has a free-spirited personality. Boating on the Nanhe River and feeling the lively night market on the banks of the river, you know that even in the distant future, the inner of Chengdu will remain unchanged.
City of Pandas: A Future with Cate
Yang Hui, Freelancer
Author’s conception:After 100 years, it might be possible to see pandas everywhere! At that time, the tradition of lining up for food is still maintained in the leisure city of Chengdu, and it is no wonder even if two or three alien tourists appear in the queue!
