The hongkong prize is one of Asia’s premier writing contests, offering a great opportunity to showcase skills and win cash prizes. Winners can also present their work at an awards ceremony and gain international exposure, increasing their chances of landing internships and other professional opportunities in the future. Those interested in entering the competition should carefully review all applicable regulations before applying, as there are strict criteria that must be met to be eligible for winning.

The competition is open to all individuals and groups of researchers in all fields, as long as their research contributes to societal progress. The judging process is conducted by an independent expert panel, which ensures that the contest is fair and equitable. Winners will receive monetary prizes, shopping vouchers, and F&B perks. They will also be able to conduct scientific research at Hong Kong’s premier facilities. This will give them an edge over their competitors and help them achieve their goals in the field of science.

This year’s nominees include activists fighting for democracy and freedom in Hong Kong, some of whom are currently facing arrest or imprisonment; community service projects promoting social progress and justice such as a charity providing shelter for homeless people; and scientists developing life-changing innovations such as liquid biopsy technology that helps doctors diagnose cancer more quickly. Their dedication and sacrifice for the cause of humanity inspire others, and demonstrate the power of the human spirit under duress.

To enhance the city’s technology and innovation atmosphere, the BOCHK Science and Technology Innovation Prize champions the mission of “Boosting Hong Kong and Serving the Country through Science”, with a view to attracting global top science talent, nurturing forward-looking scientists, and together building Hong Kong into an international science hub. The prize was established through a gift of HK$100 million from Professor Wang Gungwu.

The Hong Kong Film Awards are the main annual film awards in Hong Kong, recognizing outstanding achievements in the local film industry. The trophies awarded at the Hong Kong Film Awards are designed to reflect the cultural heritage of Hong Kong, and feature two precious elements – a pearl and a pierced jade amulet – that symbolise prosperity in Chinese culture. The prestigious award is widely regarded as one of the most reputable and influential in the Asian film industry. It has received worldwide recognition since its establishment in 1993. The winners are selected by an independent panel of judges, which comprises Hong Kong film professionals and critics. In addition, the public can vote for their favourite films during the nomination period. The finalists are announced in April every year, with the winners receiving their awards at an exclusive ceremony in May. The HKFA is a key event in the local film scene and has become an important platform for filmmakers to gather and share their views. The ceremony is also broadcast on television and online to a global audience.
