The BOCHK Prize and BOCHK Scholarship Programme Launched

The BOCHK Science and Technology Innovation Prize is an annual recognition of the pioneering efforts of scientific researchers in Hong Kong. It encourages scientists to persevere in innovative exploration, build careers in Hong Kong, serve the nation and contribute to the world.

The winners of the Hong Kong Prize this year – including activists fighting for freedom and democracy despite being jailed or even killed, a nonprofit providing shelter to homeless adults and a teacher who uses art to help kids learn math – prove that the human spirit endures even in the face of great adversity. They inspire us to be our best and show that it’s never too late to pursue our dreams.

In the field of medicine, the Young Fellows Research Prize rewards excellence in research conducted by young members of the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine. Its aim is to recognize the achievements of young Fellows in their research work which is of clinical relevance and has a potential impact on health care.

This year, the award – sponsored by the Hong Kong Association of Science and Technology and title-sponsored by the Bank of China (Hong Kong) Limited – attracted record number of applications from scientists all over the world. The jury, which was composed of experts in various fields, has selected 10 outstanding scientists whose ground-breaking research results have the potential to significantly improve people’s lives.

During the prize-giving ceremony, BOCHK also launched the BOCHK Scholarship Programme for Hong Kong-based undergraduate students to study abroad in 2023. The programme was well received by local universities and was fully subscribed in the first week of opening.

Hong Kong’s arts practitioners are energetic international centers of culture and creativity, reflecting their views of global evolution socially, culturally and economically through their various art forms. The Hong Kong Prize provides them with recognition, support and encouragement in their creative work and arts projects and offers increased international visibility through top-tier media coverage and access to an expansive network of potential collaborators.

The Prize is open to all enrolled secondary school students in Hong Kong, with the entry process involving a nomination from teachers. Each student is allowed to submit a maximum of three artworks online by 16 September. The Judges Prize is HK$8,000 and the Public Vote Prize is HK$4,000. The schools of the Judges and Public Vote winners will receive HK$10,000 each.

The Winners will be announced in December. The winning artworks will be exhibited at the Hong Kong Museum of Fine Arts during the prize-giving ceremony. In addition, the winning paintings will be published on the Hong Kong Prize website. The winning artists will be invited to take part in workshops and exhibitions. The exhibition and workshops will be held in Hong Kong in early 2020.
