Previous recipients have ranged from selfless volunteers helping homeless people to scientists who developed liquid biopsy technology for faster cancer diagnosis. To qualify for the prize, candidates must publish a scientific paper in an accredited peer-reviewed journal that makes an impactful statement about society. Clinical studies, observational or epidemiological studies and meta-analyses can all be eligible.

This year’s theme is “Our Changing World”, and the competition invites Hongkongers to explore the way that our world has evolved socially, culturally, economically, and technologically. It also asks artists to explore global issues such as labour migration, climate change, gender equality, and feminism. A total of 102 artworks were shortlisted, representing a wide range of styles and media.

Joshua Wong, leader of the pro-democracy protest movement in Hong Kong, has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for his campaign for political reforms in China. He has been compared to prominent dissidents and freedom fighters such as Nazi critic Carl von Ossietzky, Soviet dissident Andrei Sakharov, and Polish politician Lech Walesa. His nomination is likely to stoke tensions with Beijing.

The HK Arts and Science Prize is a competition that recognizes students for their academic achievements, talent, and community service involvement. It is open to students from Southeast Asia, mainland China, and worldwide. Applicants can visit the World of Winners splash page starting March 1 for their chance to win. The winners will be selected in three rounds: starting with Southeast Asian residents, followed by mainland Chinese, and then international participants.

The HK History Book Prize was launched in memory of George B. Endacott, Lecturer (1946-57) and Senior Lecturer (57-62) in History at the University of Hong Kong. The aim of the prize is to recruit new volumes into the Royal Asiatic Society’s Hong Kong Studies series by attracting authors who have both an eye for detail and a talent for writing about Hong Kong history. Its symbol, expressed in the award logo and on the trophies conferred upon winners, juxtaposes two precious elements: a pearl and a pierced jade amulet.
