Does your child have a creative and artistic ability that should be showcased for all
to see? The Hong Kong Young Writers Awards 2015 (HKYWA) offers young
people the opportunity to compete in a regional creative competition to win a variety
of prizes including Bookazine gift bags, Faber-Castell stationery and the chance to be
published in the International New York Times!
Primary and Secondary school students from Hong Kong, China, and Macau are
invited to use their creativity and imagination to engage in this year’s topic New Tales
of the Pearl River Delta. Original pieces of Fiction, Poetry, Non-Fiction, Cover Art,
Digital Storytelling and Digital Publishing will be accepted and assessed by our panel
of judges during this academic year. 100 top entries will be published in an anthology
and recognised at our awards ceremony in April 2015.
Our partnership with the Hong Kong Education Bureau has allowed us to invite every
school in Hong Kong. So please get in touch with your English, Film Studies or Media
teacher to make sure your school can be involved this year.
The Pearl River Delta, located in southern China, is one of the country’s fastest
developing and dynamic regions. A melting pot of foreign influence and traditional
Chinese culture, the Pearl River Delta is rich in history, allied by a complex fusion of
European and Chinese philosophies, architecture, and cuisine. Where east meets west,
these two ports represent a small but important part of the urban region.
This year we encourage students to explore the history and culture that surrounds the
cities of the Pearl River Delta in order to produce their new and exciting tales. Judges
will recognise entries on how the Pearl River Delta is represented through the written,
art and film pieces submitted this year.
