The HK Prize and Other Prizes to Celebrate Talented Artists in Hong Kong

The hk prize is an international award competition which honours talented artists who make Hong Kong their home and showcases how they contribute to the world by exploring global evolution – socially, culturally, economically and technologically – through various art mediums. It aims to inspire the next generation of creators and celebrates their achievements in a way that is unique to our city.

Hong Kong is an energetic international centre of culture and innovation. It has a wealth of creativity and talent among our residents, as well as a global network of talented creators who call Hong Kong their home. This year’s theme, Our Changing World, is an opportunity for you to explore how the world is evolving – in ways that are both profound and mundane.

Awarded by the Hong Kong Academy of Humanities, this prize is intended to recognise and encourage early-career achievement among scholars in the humanities working in Hong Kong. It is awarded to a monograph by a humanities scholar in the early stages of his or her career and which has been published or is under contract for publication by a recognised academic press.
