If you specialize in Asian culture and history writing, the HK Prize provides a fantastic opportunity to make your writing known. Not only can the contest offer large monetary rewards as well as shopping vouchers and other perks – there are also certain rules which must be observed to ensure an easy entry process; therefore it is recommended to carefully read over these before applying so any misunderstandings can be avoided.
US lawmakers have nominated Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement for the Nobel peace prize, calling it an inspiration worldwide in light of Beijing’s crackdown. Nine lawmakers across party lines urged the committee to award it to activists like 24-year-old Joshua Wong convicted for subversion. Since last year’s protests, Beijing has used laws against dissension to silence opposition voices.
The award recognizes scientists whose contributions to mathematics have had an outsized effect on human society and will have lasting consequences in areas such as business, finance, science engineering and mathematics. Open to researchers worldwide and selected through an impartial peer review process independent from sponsorship or special committee influences, recipients are expected to attend the awards ceremonies where they can present their research work and gain exposure for it.
This year is the third in three years that an award has been bestowed, and marks the first time since Covid-19 that its ceremony is being held in person. Winners will be invited to Hong Kong by City University Wan Chai campus to accept their prizes; this marks a historical event as it brings scientists from astronomy, life science and medicine and mathematical sciences all under one roof simultaneously for prize presentations.
