The Hong Kong Prize and the HK Student Prize

The Hong Kong Prize Literary Competition is an exceptionally prestigious literary contest that attracts writers from around the globe. Top ten placers receive both financial rewards as well as shopping vouchers and F&B perks; thus it is essential that participants read all rules thoroughly prior to entering; any misstep could damage your reputation and reduce chances of winning!

The Ig Nobel Award is intended as a humorous takeoff on the Nobel Prize, with winners receiving an Ig Nobel designation which should not be taken seriously. Instead, its purpose is to inspire creativity and encourage discoveries with no serious intent behind them – past winners have included a psychology professor who created an app that monitors whether students are paying attention in class and another who invented a machine allowing ants to move across both surfaces simultaneously!

The Hong Kong Science and Technology Innovation Prize honors scientists who have made significant contributions in their respective fields, while also acknowledging their impactful contribution to society. One of Asia’s premier prizes, its recipients can benefit from increased international exposure and career development opportunities provided by it. Moreover, recipients will have an opportunity to present their research findings at an awards ceremony to boost visibility internationally while expanding potential collaborative relationships.

Hong Kong has since returned to normal following its lengthy COVID-19 pandemic, and both government and private sectors are working tirelessly to bolster the city’s economy and improve its competitiveness. They do this through encouraging innovative ideas, supporting technological advances and supporting young people in their pursuit of success – measures which should eventually enhance Hong Kong’s ability to compete with major cities around the globe.

Nomination by teachers is necessary in order to enter, with up to three pieces of artwork submitted online prior to the submission deadline and sold after exhibition for proceeds to support Justice Centre’s work (for more details refer to Terms & Conditions).

The Hong Kong Student Prize was first introduced in 2012 as the first award dedicated to encouraging creativity, innovation and critical thinking among Hong Kong school children through expressive arts. Supported by Hong Kong’s art and expressive arts community, this prize also serves to recognize students’ talent and efforts. Judges will look for creativity and innovation when selecting shortlisted works, with winners receiving cash prizes of HK$8,000 while their schools receive funding support to enhance expression arts activities. The Hong Kong Student Prize judging process is entirely impartial, with results announced at an awards ceremony. Organised by Art Call Foundation (HK), with funding support from the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
