The HK Prize – Inspire Others to Build a Harmonious Society

hk prize

The H. K. Prize is a globally-recognized award that honors individuals who advance world civilization by inspiring others to build harmonious societies. Winners may include selfless volunteers and good Samaritans who give their lives in order to help others, as well as scientists utilizing their skills for bettering people’s quality of life – for instance a recent recipient developed liquid biopsy technology which speeds cancer diagnosis – an integral component of progressing our species further forward.

This prize is open to research that is clinically-relevant, published in a peer-reviewed journal and has had an important impact on medical/health science. Such work could include prospective and retrospective clinical trials; observational or epidemiological studies; meta-analyses or basic science research demonstrating excellence in scientific methodology with empirical data supporting inferences made.

As well as receiving a monetary prize, winners of this contest have an opportunity to visit Hong Kong and meet scientists from top-tier institutions. Furthermore, winners gain international exposure as well as access to Hong Kong’s research facilities that could boost their career prospects.

Winners are selected across a range of categories, such as arts, business, health and science. The top winner in each category receives a gold medal while runners-up may get silver or bronze awards. Winners will be honored during a ceremony typically held each November in Hong Kong which attracts VIPs both local and abroad.

This year’s winners include Better Days by Derek Tsang – winner of three awards – and To My Nineteen Year Old Self, featuring Jackson Yee (three wins). Due to pandemic concerns, organizers held their awards ceremony at a studio and announced winners within 11 minutes – selected from 19 nominations within an hour’s screening session.

Justice Centre Hong Kong was selected this year’s prize winner among civil society organizations. Their mission is to help migrants achieve protection, justice and a dignified life through community participation initiatives and psychosocial assistance services. Furthermore, prize operations are conducted independently with all review procedures being transparent.

This Prize was established by friends and students of Dr. John D. Young to commemorate his significant contribution to Asian history. Since its establishment, it has drawn scholars and students from around the globe to Hong Kong for research purposes as well as to engage in fruitful exchanges among peers.

The prize has two goals; short term recruitment of new volumes to Royal Asiatic Society’s Hong Kong History Book Series, and long term promotion of scholarship in this field. Applications from Southeast Asia, mainland China, and all around the world are welcomed – submission deadline is September 1.
