What is the HK Prize?

hk prize

HK prize is an exciting and lucrative writing competition that recognizes authors for their work. Winners not only receive monetary prizes but also shopping vouchers and F&B perks at award ceremonies held throughout Hong Kong. The competition is open to people from Southeast Asia, mainland China and around the world. Those who wish to participate should carefully review the rules before registering.

Applicants for the hk prize can submit research papers from four categories: clinical studies (including prospective and retrospective clinical trials), observational or epidemiological studies, meta-analyses, and basic science articles. Basic science articles focus on empirical data collection and analysis, while meta-analyses or reviews make scientific inferences based on evidence. All submissions are peer-reviewed.

Aside from the monetary awards, finalists are invited to visit some of Hong Kong’s premier research facilities and meet scientists from all over the world – sponsored by Bank of Hong Kong. The prize also aims to promote and strengthen Hong Kong’s role as a hub for science and technology innovation. The top ten winners will also be invited to an awards ceremony that will feature prominent personalities and distinguished guests from Hong Kong.

According to the South China Morning Post’s editorial team, the hk prize honors individuals who contribute to world civilisation and inspire others towards creating harmonious societies. This year, nominees included activists fighting for freedom and democracy – some even facing jail time – as well as selfless volunteers and good Samaritans who help those in need. There were also students using their technological skills to assist homeless people, and a professor who developed liquid biopsy technology that has speeded up cancer diagnosis.

This year’s theme of the hk prize is “Our Changing World,” and entrants are encouraged to explore global evolution through a variety of mediums. There is no fixed definition of what qualifies as a winning entry, but the jury will take into account the broader impact and relevance of each artwork.

The winner of this prestigious award will receive a cash prize, a trophy and the opportunity to meet leading scientists in Hong Kong. Previous winners of the HK Prize have included scientists who have contributed to our understanding of astronomical bodies such as the moon, the sun, and the stars. Other finalists have worked on the improvement of our daily lives, from improving road safety to developing innovative vaccines and drugs.

The HK Film Award is one of the most prestigious cinematic prizes in Hong Kong’s history. Its winners are chosen by an independent, multi-disciplinary jury of experts in the field. The judging process takes place in January-March each year. The jury is comprised of professional representatives from 13 Hong Kong film and TV production companies. The judging panel is also independent of sponsorship or any ad-hoc committees to ensure consistency and impartiality in assessing the entries.
