Forget the incessant bickering about Anglo-American spec fic awards. I’m curious about non-Anglophone "Best of 2011" releases

I am aware of a few. I am awaiting the arrival of Portuguese writer David Soares’ Batalha (his previous works are very, very good). I know several Brazilian writers have recently had short fiction of theirs made available in the Kindle Store. But on the whole, I am not as aware as I would like of what is out there and considered to be very good.
If you happen to know of a recent award (even if it’s pre-2011 releases) in a particular country and can list some of the shortlisted titles/winners, I would greatly appreciate it, as I might be able to start buying at least some of the recommended titles in the coming months and mentioning them here on this blog or on Twitter. All suggestions are welcome (well, the serious ones) and thanks!
