Invitation for Entries

 

Press freedom, freedom of speech and democracy are pillars with which a sound society is built and a great nation constructed. The Kam Yiu-yu Press Freedom Awards are set up by The Kam Yiu-yu Foundation to recognize and encourage the pursuit of excellence in the reporting and safeguarding of press freedom by Hong Kong journalists.

 

Objectives and Criteria:  The Kam Yiu-yu Press Freedom Awards aim at enhancing awareness of press freedom and promoting professionalism among journalists. Judges look for originality, professionalism, initiative and, where relevant, courage on the part of the journalist or publisher.

 

Submissions of investigative reports or news reports by journalists who resist all kinds of censorship and obstructions from the authorities or private organizations are welcomed. For example, news stories on or about infringements of public interests by public bodies and private enterprises, abuse of power by the authorities, or mal-treatment of employees are appropriate entries. 

 

Eligibility:  Submissions may be in either English or Chinese. The competition is open to journalists in print, electronic or online media. Submissions must have been produced either by journalists for publication or broadcast in Hong Kong, or by overseas correspondents stationed in Hong Kong.

 

Organizations may submit articles on behalf of their employees. All prizes are awarded to individuals, not organizations. Entries must indicate the category, Print Media (including material published online), Television or Radio.  Each participant can only submit ONE entry, unless it is a bylined entry that more than one reporter contribute.
