The Hongkong Prize Literary Competition

hongkong prize

The Hongkong Prize Literary Competition is highly competitive and attracts authors from around the globe. Ten finalists receive monetary prizes and an invitation to attend the awards ceremony; it is important that participants read all rules and regulations prior to entering, in order to avoid making mistakes that could lead to litigation later on. Furthermore, players should only play on trusted websites which offer promotions which increase their odds of winning.

The annual Hong Kong Prize was first established in 1996 to promote scholarship on both Hong Kong and China, inspiring young people to pursue their interests and broaden their global perspectives while encouraging research with real-world applications. Its logo and trophies represent the balance between science and culture while its award is open to both local and international students across five categories.

This year’s finalists include a student who used technology to help homeless individuals, an artist who interprets human rights issues into fine art concepts, and a civil society organisation which ensures migrant children have access to education, protection, and a dignified life. Organisers hope the award will inspire more people to pursue their dreams and reach success; winners may also receive invitations to attend seminars and research internships at universities and laboratories throughout Hong Kong that could allow them to collaborate with cutting-edge scientists who have gone on to win Nobel prizes!

Finalists of this prize must demonstrate both its significance and societal impact to encourage research with real-world applications and foster a new generation of science entrepreneurs to serve Hong Kong and Southeast Asia. Winners are selected through a rigorous evaluation process, and given an opportunity to visit Hong Kong and meet with peers.

As well as receiving a monetary prize, finalists of the Hongkong Prize will also have an opportunity to work at one of Hong Kong’s universities or laboratories for six months, giving them access to some of Hong Kong’s leading scientists while honing research and collaboration skills. They will also attend seminars and conferences relevant to their field.

The winner of this prize will receive a grant of up to $1 Million over a two year period, to fund research projects designed to advance understanding of Hong Kong history and culture. The competition is open to people from Southeast Asia, mainland China and around the world, and winning entries will be selected by a panel of experts including prominent historians, academics and businesspeople; winners will be announced March 31. Submissions will be evaluated based on quality of scholarship as well as how well they address topic relevant to Hong Kong’s history and culture.
