The Hong Kong Prize and BOCHK Science and Technology Innovation Prize

The Hong Kong Prize is an illustrious writing competition that attracts authors from around the world. Its impartial judging process means that participants can trust their submission to be fairly considered. It is also a great way to build your portfolio and gain exposure as an author. However, it is important to read all rules and regulations carefully before submitting an entry.

The prizes were established in 1954 to recognise the outstanding achievements of journalists and raise professional standards. Each year, the Newspaper Society of Hong Kong awards the top three winners in the reporting, writing and design categories.

This year, the Post won two prizes and was runner-up in another seven for a total of 11 awards. Senior designer Emilio Rivera received merit for Best News Page Design (Series) for his work on the Gaza-Israel conflict. The Post’s chief political editor, Samson Lee, won the Champion of the Best News Reporting category for his series on Hong Kong’s aging population. He also won a second prize for a special feature on the challenge of cross-border organ transplantation, and a third for an investigation into fertility perseverance for cancer patients.

BOCHK Science and Technology Innovation Prize aims to promote scientific exploration, nurture forward-looking scientists and turn the city into an international research and innovation hub. The prize is presented annually in a ceremony, and the winning researchers will be inspired to continue their innovative exploration, establish themselves in Hong Kong and serve the world with technological contributions.

Winners of the HKFA will receive cash awards for supporting their creative works and arts projects, arts education or further studies. The award seeks to honour distinguished arts practitioners and to recognise their contributions in promoting the cultural development of Hong Kong.

Applicants must be a Hong Kong resident and submit an article that examines the global evolution – socially, culturally and economically – through various art mediums. The winners of this prestigious prize will be honored at an awards ceremony and given the opportunity to access premier research facilities in Hong Kong.

This year’s nominations include a young man using technology to assist homeless students and a visual artist who reinterprets human rights concepts through fine art concepts. The finalists and their works are sure to inspire and encourage the public to respect and celebrate people’s diversity, while embracing our common humanity.
