What is the Hongkong Prize?

The Hongkong Prize Literary Competition attracts writers from around the globe. Ten finalists receive both a monetary prize and plaque at an awards ceremony; as well as other benefits. Before entering this contest it is vitally important that one reads through and understands all its rules and regulations carefully to prevent any complications later.

The Hong Kong Prize is an independent merit-based award sponsored by Bank of China (Hong Kong) Limited that recognizes scientific research conducted in Hong Kong with an aim of applying its innovations for society’s good. It consists of four categories that recognize excellence: artificial intelligence/robotics; life/health issues/new materials/energy sources/advanced manufacturing.

Since its establishment, the Hong Kong Prize has honored over 90 individuals from Asia for their exceptional humanitarian contributions in upholding humanity and its values through daily work. Its symbol, displayed both on its logo and trophies awarded to winners, juxtaposes two precious elements: a pearl and pierced jade amulet – making this award truly one-of-a-kind in honoring those who represent humanity through daily lives and actions.

Winners of the Hong Kong Prize not only stand to gain financially, but will also get the opportunity to participate in seminars or internships at some of Hong Kong’s premier research institutes – gaining insight into cutting-edge research while developing professional relationships amongst scientists in Hong Kong and beyond. Furthermore, their work will be presented at an awards ceremony.

All of the nominees for the Hongkong prize have shown remarkable dedication in fighting China’s rule over Hong Kong, and its steady erosion of freedoms. Their dedication is evident in their refusal to back down when facing massive repression by Beijing; their efforts in upholding human rights and upholding rule of law should be honored; these individuals provide us all with hope for a brighter future – let’s keep up their hard work!
