hongkong prize

The Hongkong Prize is a renowned writing competition that attracts authors from around the globe. Top ten finalists receive cash awards and shopping vouchers while networking with fellow authors. Before making deposits to enter this contest, however, it is imperative that anyone reading all rules and regulations thoroughly. This will protect them against scams while increasing their chances of success.

The Hongkong Prize winner is determined by an expert panel in each relevant field. They assess research quality and innovation, the applications of research results to practical situations and any social or economic value created as criteria for selection. At an awards ceremony held after being named winner, he or she will also gain access to premier research facilities located throughout Hong Kong; an opportunity not lost upon young scientists looking for their foothold in one of the world’s foremost science hubs.

Winners of the Hongkong Prize can expect their work to be featured in prominent international journals and attend seminars and conferences related to their field, possibly working with Nobel laureates as collaborators. Furthermore, travel funds are provided so they can present their research across borders.

Hongkong Prize has historically recognized people who have demonstrated outstanding achievements across various fields. Past recipients have included a teenage who designed an app to assist homeless individuals, an artist who interprets human rights issues through fine art concepts, and even a brain cancer survivor who created a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping students with mental health problems. To be considered for the award, applicants must submit a research article related to their field – clinical studies, observational or epidemiological articles, meta-analyses or reviews are all eligible submissions.

Aspiring candidates may apply for the Hongkong Prize from March 1 through June 30 of each year by visiting the World of Winners splash page to initiate their application process. The competition is open to residents of Southeast Asia, mainland China and any other nation worldwide.

The BOCHK Science and Technology Innovation Prize aims to promote the development of science in Hong Kong by attracting global top science talent, cultivating forward-looking scientists, and making Hong Kong into an international innovation and technology hub. Its logo and trophies were designed to evoke images of pearls and jade amulets which symbolize wisdom and longevity within Chinese culture, with this prize also serving as recognition of working adults’ perseverance in pursuit of lifelong learning for excellence and improvement.
