Poster design and video competitions in celebration of HKSAR's 20th anniversary open for enrolment

Hong Kong students and other residents are invited to take part in poster design and video competitions in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) to explore their creativity and express their aspirations towards the future of Hong Kong.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR, the poster design competition welcomes primary school pupils to run free with their imagination under the theme "When I'm 20 ..." to show what they expect their life would be like when they are 20.

The video competition, with a theme of "Togetherness", consists of two categories - one for secondary school students and the other for members of the public of all age groups. Participants can make use of their videos to demonstrate their wishes for bringing Hong Kong people together and becoming stronger. Participants of both categories may apply individually or in groups of not more than four members.

A spokesman for the Information Services Department said that, through celebrating the important occasion of the 20th anniversary, the public could strengthen their sense of belonging to Hong Kong and look ahead to the future.

The competitions are organised by the Information Services Department and supported by the Education Bureau, with Ming Pao and South China Morning Post as co-organisers. Interested members of the public can download the enrolment form from the competitions' website ( starting from today (December 14). Entries for the video competition can be submitted online. The submission deadline of the two competitions is February 24, 2017.

Each category of the poster design competition (primary school category) and the video competition (secondary school and open categories) will have one Champion, a First Runner-up, a Second Runner-up and 10 Merit Awards.

Scholarships or cash prizes ranging from $500 to $5,000 and trophies will be awarded to the winners. Winning entries may be displayed at roving exhibitions and other venues.
