What is the HK Prize?

hk prize

hk prize is one of the most prestigious science prizes in Asia, offering a substantial monetary award to winners. The organisers aim to inspire students to pursue their dreams and achieve success in the field of science. The award also encourages the development of Hong Kong as a world-class centre for scientific research and international cooperation.

The prize is open to all fields of scientific and technological innovation, with special emphasis on artificial intelligence and robotics, life and health, new materials and energy, and advanced manufacturing. The award will be presented to no more than five persons or teams per year, and each winner will receive a cash prize and a trophy.

A few weeks ago, more than a dozen professors from prestigious universities in China wrote a letter to the Hong Kong government calling for the release of Cai Xiaobo and other dissidents. It’s a sign that Hong Kong, once a global center for freedom and democracy, is no longer a safe haven from China’s brutal crackdown on civil society.

The HK Prize is a non-governmental merit-based prize promoting international cooperation and high moral standards in the field of science, with a unique blend of Chinese and Western culture. Its distinctive design, featuring a pearl and jade amulet with positive connotations in both Chinese and Western cultures, is designed to reflect the values of the prize and promote awareness of Hong Kong as a world-class city for scientific pursuit.

Each prize is awarded to a person or team who has made significant contributions to the advancement of a particular field. The prize is a great way to recognise the hard work of scientists in Hong Kong and around the world, and it can be a huge incentive for people to continue to strive for success. It’s important to remember that while the prize is a fantastic opportunity, you should always put your safety and security first, and never gamble with money that you can’t afford to lose.

HK Student Prize is open to all enrolled secondary school students in Hong Kong. Participants must be nominated by their teachers and submit artwork online before the submission deadline. Students may submit up to three entries each. Each entry will be judged by a panel of judges, with the highest scoring entries making it to the shortlist. The Judges Prize will be HK$8,000 and the School Prize will be HK$20,000.

In addition to the Judges and School Prize, this year Justice Centre is pleased to announce a new award, the InkluVision Award, supported by Goethe-Institut Hong Kong, for an art piece that advocates inclusion without limitation or defines inspiring visions. In addition to the recurring annual theme of refugee rights, this year’s prize has an additional theme of “Art and Activists”. You can learn more about the prize by visiting the official website.
