The HK Prize is an award for scientific research with global impact. It is one of Asia’s most prestigious awards, drawing thousands of applicants annually. Winners receive both a monetary prize and the opportunity to conduct their research in Hong Kong. This year’s winners are two scientists whose work could have far-reaching consequences in the lives of people around the world.

The prizes are awarded in the categories of science, business, art and public service. They are sponsored by the eminent local and international individuals, organizations, universities, companies and government agencies. They are given in recognition of outstanding achievements, and to encourage young scientists to continue their pursuit of excellence. The prize is also intended to promote international exchanges in the fields of science and technology.

This is the third time that the HK Prize has been awarded. In the past, winners have included a researcher who developed new antibiotics, a scientist who studied AIDS and HIV in Africa and a doctor who performed life-saving heart surgery. The judges of the HK Prize have said that these scientists should be rewarded for their accomplishments and their contributions to humanity.

In the documentary category, a special mention was given to Oksana Karpovych’s Intercepted, which contrasts scenes in Ukraine since the invasion with phone conversations between Russian soldiers and their families. The jury prize went to Wong Sui-pong’s Obedience, which explores the microcosm of Hong Kong’s Hung Hom area. In the best business news writing category, Liu Yifan took home the top prize with his story titled Virtually Painful, which exposes the risks of cryptocurrency investments.

The HK Prize is open to students from Southeast Asia, mainland China and other parts of the world who are enrolled in tertiary education in Hong Kong. The prize includes a cash award and a trip to Hong Kong for the final award ceremony. The winner is also invited to take part in a series of activities that will help them to further develop their career in the anti-fraud field. The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) Hong Kong Chapter established the HK Prize to support undergraduate students in broadening their learning horizons and gaining professional advancement in the prevention, deterrence, detection and investigation of fraud. This year’s competition will be held from March 1 to April 30. Interested students can visit the World of Winners splash page to apply for the prize starting on that date. The winner will be notified by the end of April.
