The Hong Kong Prize is one of Asia’s premier awards, drawing thousands of applicants each year. Recognizing scientific research that provides significant societal benefit and encouraging young people to follow their passion while expanding global perspectives, it rewards recipients with not only substantial monetary prizes but also access to Hong Kong’s premier research facilities as well as international exposure.

As founders of nonprofit organizations that shelter homeless individuals, and innovators who developed liquid biopsy technology that allows doctors to detect cancer more rapidly, this year’s award honorees have accomplished incredible things. Each received their monetary prizes as well as an opportunity to present their research at an awards ceremony.

Scientists and researchers from around the world may apply for this prestigious prize offered by Bank of China (Hong Kong) Limited. The prize recognizes scientists whose breakthroughs span robotics, life/healthcare innovation, materials science and energy research that transform Hong Kong R&D into social and economic value creation.

The HK Prize is an invaluable opportunity for public awareness of science and culture to grow. Additionally, the Prize can inspire younger generations to enter these fields, making an essential contribution towards creating a healthy society – winning it can be tremendously fulfilling for its winners!

Academics from around the world have come together to nominate five imprisoned pro-democracy leaders as candidates for the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize, in protest at recent legislation passed in China that is widely seen as an attempt to silence critics of Beijing.

Michael Hui, one of Hong Kong’s premier comedians during the 70s and 80s who brought us timeless comedic masterpieces such as The Private Eyes and Security Unlimited, received a lifetime achievement award at Sunday’s Asian Film Awards – well deserved recognition from his peers as “the most iconic Hong Kong actor ever.”

An international panel of judges nominated five imprisoned pro-democracy activists as nominees for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize in order to draw attention to their cause and put pressure on the Norwegian Nobel Committee to withdraw its nominations. Nominations were submitted by 15 prominent academics from 10 different countries – renowned Hong Kong academics were included, along with one Nobel laureate.

Anyone can enter themselves or their colleagues for the Hong Kong Prizes, with no fee involved. Simply complete an online nomination form before the end of December and submit either a clinical study, observational/epidemiological study, basic science research study (review articles or letters to editors are ineligible) in one of these fields (clinical studies are ineligible) along with the results. Winners will be selected at an awards ceremony held in Hong Kong. Not only do winners gain access to some of Hong Kong’s premier research facilities but it provides them with recognition of outstanding work in science/culture/history fields alike!
