What is the HK Prize?

The HK Prize is an international recognition of scientists whose research has made an outstanding contribution to society. Open to researchers worldwide and judged on merit alone without sponsorship or committee influence, winners receive both a monetary award as well as the chance to showcase their work globally.

The Hong Kong Prize was founded in 2022 to recognize individuals whose efforts advance global civilisation and motivate others towards creating an harmonious society. This recognition includes contributions in artificial intelligence and robotics, life and health sciences, new materials and energy production and advanced manufacturing. Winners will receive both monetary prize and trophy, plus seminars/internship opportunities at Hong Kong universities/laboratories to meet leading scientists from around the globe.

A record 102 submissions to this year’s prize were received, all exploring aspects of global evolution socially, culturally, and technologically as they impact people everywhere. Artists explored different perspectives through sculpture to performance to video installations to delve deeper into this theme.

Winners of this prestigious contest will be rewarded with not only a substantial monetary prize but also shopping vouchers and F&B benefits. Before participating, however, it is crucial that participants read carefully through its rules and regulations before selecting an online gaming site which offers promotions that could improve their odds.

The Hong Kong Film Awards (HKFA) has long been recognized for providing young directors with vital support, while simultaneously serving to advance Chinese cinema and its values. Its iconic golden lion statue has become an emblematic image of Chinese film industry; furthermore, an annual award known as Secret Screenplay recognizes scriptwriters and editors who have made significant contributions to Hong Kong film productions.

Sammo Hung, an iconic performer, martial artist, and director has been chosen as the 2019 Hong Kong Legend Award recipient and will receive it during a ceremony at Hong Kong Cultural Centre this Sunday.

The Hong Kong Prize has recognized an array of notable alumni, from journalists who highlight human rights abuses to activists risking their lives for freedom of speech. It has also recognized scientists whose work has made an impactful difference to people’s lives such as professors who pioneered liquid biopsy to quickly detect cancer diagnoses by doctors.

This year’s finalists have been announced and winners of the Hong Kong Prize will be awarded in December. Winners of this prestigious award will receive both a monetary prize and be included on the official programme for Hong Kong International Film Festival, in addition to having an opportunity to visit local production companies to learn filmmaking techniques from professionals as well as collaborate with acclaimed filmmakers and actors.
