Award and Prize

The chinese government did not like the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize. It seems that the government of China does not want people to use the terms prize and awards. Liu Xiaobo is a person who disagrees with chinese politics and he won the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize

Another controversial activity was when Peng Xiaoyun came up with a list of “100 Most Influential People of Our Time”,  in a magazine called Time Weekly. There were several Chinese people who made this list. After this he was forced to quit his job. 
The chinese symbol that means award and prize is now banned from media outlets and public places without the ok from authorities. I think that this is kind of an over reaction. I don’t understand exactly why someone would say that it is wrong to use the terms “prize and award”. I feel that these terms are the best ways to describe an achievement.
