The HK Prize and the Hong Kong Film Awards

The hk prize is one of Asia’s most prestigious awards, drawing thousands of applicants annually. Winners not only receive a significant monetary prize but also gain access to top research facilities in Hong Kong. The competition is open to all Fellows of the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine who are working in any specialties and whose research has made a contribution to clinical practice, medical science, or healthcare development.

This year’s nominations included activists fighting for freedom and democracy, some of whom are even arrested or jailed in their struggle; community service initiatives, including a nonprofit providing shelter to homeless adults; and cultural preservation projects, among others. These exemplary Hong Kong citizens exemplify the true spirit of charity and civic awareness through their courageous efforts and inspiring stories.

The Hong Kong Film Awards, or HKFA, is a film award given by the Hong Kong Film Critics Association each year to honour the finest achievements in local filmmaking. The award is voted on by members of thirteen professional film bodies in the city and is one of the most coveted prizes in the local film industry.

Hong Kong actor, director, and martial artist Sammo Hung received a lifetime achievement award from his fans at the 2024 HKFA ceremony. His acting career spans over three decades and he is known for his charismatic screen presence, slick martial arts moves, and witty comedic delivery. His films include Better Days, Zero, and One Nite in Mongkok.

HK film maker Benny Chan won a series of awards at the HKFA for his action movie Raging Fire, which was widely praised for its action choreography, music, and editing. Its box office success proved that cinema industry doom-mongers are wrong.

The annual Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Art Prize is hosted by Justice Centre Hong Kong and co-sponsored by EU Office in Hong Kong and Macao and Goethe-Institut Hong Kong. This year’s theme “Our Changing World” encourages artists to examine the social, cultural, environmental and technological facets of global change through their artworks.

The hk prize is one of the most prestigious high school contests in Asia, offering cash prizes and other perks for students with outstanding academic achievement and talents, extracurricular involvement, leadership, and passion for community service.
