The BOCHK Prize and the Hong Kong Film Awards

BOCHK Science and Technology Innovation Prize is an independent merit-based award that recognizes scientific discoveries with significant social impacts while encouraging young scientists to follow their dreams. Laureates receive both monetary prizes and access to Hong Kong’s premier research facilities, giving them the chance to advance their careers in one of the world’s vibrant science hubs. Past winners have included entrepreneurs using technology to assist homeless people as well as student artists interpreting human rights concepts through fine art.

This year’s nominations included activists fighting for freedom and democracy – many jailed as a result; community service initiatives, like providing shelter to homeless adults; and social justice projects such as rewarding volunteers for completing community service hours with prizes. They all demonstrate resilience of human spirit even under adverse conditions.

HK Prize is open to enrolled secondary school students in Hong Kong who have been nominated by their teachers, with submissions to be made online and selected by a panel of judges. Top ten finalists will be rewarded with both monetary prizes and shopping vouchers; one entry will receive the Judges Prize award; this competition offers students an invaluable chance to build portfolios while honing writing skills – just make sure that all regulations have been read carefully beforehand!

Established in 1993, the Hong Kong Film Awards (HKFA) is an annual ceremony to recognize outstanding achievements in Hong Kong’s film industry. Voting takes place each January-March by an independent group of experts selected from thirteen professional film bodies in Hong Kong. Voting takes place January through March each year; an independent jury selects winners. As the only award in Hong Kong that recognises both individual achievements as well as teams in both fiction and non-fiction film production, it stands apart among major international film awards.

The Hong Kong Prize Scholarship program provides high school students in Hong Kong the opportunity to win cash prizes and other perks for extracurricular activities, with nominations coming from teachers. Students participating may also receive recognition for academic achievements and talent; making this one of the most sought-after scholarships available, with participants standing a chance of receiving up to HK$30,000 as prize money!
