"My Future Hong Kong" drawing competition award presentation ceremony held
Hong Kong (HKSAR) - More than 3,000 members of the public as well as primary and secondary school students participated in the "My Future Hong Kong" drawing competition organised by the Planning Department and City Gallery, and supported by the Hong Kong Society for Education in Art, to illustrate their vision of the future through painting.
The award presentation ceremony, in which 48 participants and 2 schools received awards, was held at the City Gallery in Central today (July 28).
Officiating at the ceremony, the Director of Planning, Mr Jimmy Leung, said he was encouraged by the fervent response to the competition.
"The drawing competition is intended to encourage the public to illustrate their 'dream homeland' and the future of the city using imagination and creativity, so as to share their vision of Hong Kong as the ideal place to live," Mr Leung said.
The competition comprised three sections, namely the primary school section, secondary school section and open section, with the respective themes of "My Dream Homeland", "Ideal Green City" and "Impressive Hong Kong". A champion and 15 outstanding awards were selected for each section.
Awards for active participation were also given to the primary and secondary schools with the highest number of submissions.
The winning entries will be exhibited in the City Gallery from August to mid-September.
Located at 3 Edinburgh Place, Central, the City Gallery will be officially opened in the latter half of August. It will be the first permanent planning and infrastructure gallery in Hong Kong. Occupying five storeys with a floor area of more than 3,200 square metres, the gallery will offer a host of interactive exhibits to showcase the uniqueness of Hong Kong past and future, as well as share with the public the vision for city planning and infrastructure projects.
