The Hongkong Prize and the HK Arts Prize 2023

hongkong prize

Hongkong Prize is an annual writing contest designed to recognize authors specializing in Asian culture and history. Attracting thousands of applicants each year, winners can receive both monetary prizes as well as exposure at an awards ceremony to gain international exposure for their work. Open to people from Southeast Asia and mainland China as well as around the globe – those interested should read all rules and regulations carefully prior to submitting an application form.

The Hong Kong Prize awards annually honor individuals whose efforts have made major contributions to world civilisation and society at large. Past recipients have included social justice activists fighting for democracy in their home countries as well as community service workers such as founding an organisation providing shelter for homeless adults. Each winner also receives an individual trophy bearing Hong Kong’s iconic skyline with their name prominently displayed.

In addition to offering a prize fund of HK$2 million, the BOCHK Science and Technology Innovation Prize also features grants. Eligible applicants must be researchers or trainees who have published original articles in scientific journals in the last year relating to clinical studies (including prospective or retrospective), observational or epidemiological studies, basic science studies or meta-analyses that focus on gathering empirical data – review articles, case reports or letters to editors will not be considered for consideration.

Hong Kong has long been renowned for scientific research and is among the five global innovation centres. Hong Kong universities produce outstanding talent in areas like information and communications technologies (ICT), life sciences (LS), engineering materials biomedical sciences and environmental issues; this has earned Hong Kong several accolades including several Nobel Prize awards.

Shortlisted artworks for the 2023 Hong Kong Arts Prize under the theme, “Our Changing World”, include established local artists, community art groups, youth art groups and youth art groups exploring various aspects of global development – socially, culturally and technologically. From international displacement and climate change to labour migration and gender equality. The selection includes works created using various media such as sculpture and painting as well as gender equality issues.

Finalists were selected through a rigorous screening process and recognized for their exceptional artistic achievements in response to this year’s theme, “Colours of Humanity”. This year’s prize exhibition will take place from 1 December until 14 January 2024 and admission is free; select works can be purchased with all proceeds going towards Goethe-Institut Hong Kong’s charitable refugee protection work; free guided tours can also be registered for on a first come, first serve basis at registration on our official website – for further details, visit here – this exhibition is supported by HKSAR Government through Cultural Development Fund support!
