Taking Part in the HK Prize Can Lead to Increased International Exposure and a Broader Audience

HK Prize offers young writers an opportunity to win monetary prizes as well as showcase their work at an awards ceremony. However, it is important to read the rules and regulations carefully before submitting your entry. Taking part in this contest can also lead to increased international exposure and a wider audience.

Founded in 2018, this award is open to students who are from Hong Kong or mainland China and have completed post-secondary education in the HKSAR. Winners are selected by an independent selection committee composed of industry professionals. The prize will be presented at a ceremony held in June each year. It aims to help build a better world through education and foster a culture of excellence in the HKSAR.

This award recognizes individuals who advance world civilisation and inspire others towards building harmonious societies. Its previous winners include selfless volunteers assisting the homeless and a scientist who developed liquid biopsy technology to speed up cancer diagnosis. Its logo features a pearl and jade amulet, symbolising both precious elements that are integral to life.

In a letter to the Nobel peace prize committee, nine US lawmakers from both parties nominated the pro-democracy campaigners of Hong Kong as global inspirations in the face of Beijing’s crackdown. The activists are a source of hope for the human spirit, they said, and their peaceful protests show how people can prevail against oppressive regimes.

The BOCHK Science and Technology Innovation Prize is a non-governmental merit-based award sponsored by the Bank of China (Hong Kong) Limited to honor scientists whose research makes a difference in society. It is open to researchers worldwide and the selection is impartial without sponsorship or committee influences. Laureates will receive both financial reward and international exposure.

This year’s exhibition celebrates the diversity of artistic styles and expressions in Hong Kong, featuring both established local artists and youth artists working across a wide range of mediums. The theme – ‘Our Changing World’ – invites artists to interpret the rapid social, cultural, technological and environmental evolution that affects humanity in different ways.

HK Prize rewards students who demonstrate academic excellence, extracurricular involvement and leadership potential. Winners can look forward to cash prizes and access to Hong Kong’s premier facilities for scientific research. They will be promoted internationally and have the chance to collaborate with global partners to further their studies and career. The finalists are selected from a pool of outstanding entries. The winning works will be exhibited in an art gallery in the city’s Central district. Those who are not shortlisted will be included in an online gallery. HK Prize will also support the Society’s expressive arts programming. The winning artworks will be re-exhibited in the same venue in 2020. The finalists will be awarded certificates and a trophy. They will also be featured in a book. The award is a great way to encourage high school students to strive for their goals in the future. It will also serve as a valuable platform for the future development of Hong Kong’s talent in the field of art.
