"Be a Smart Netizen" Video Contest invites entries

     The "Be a Smart Netizen" Video Contest opened for entry today (June 17).

     The contest is jointly organised by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO), the Hong Kong Police Force (HKPF) and the Hong Kong Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Centre (HKCERT) to promote awareness of information security and adoption of the best security practices in the community.

     Entry videos should feature stories on potential security risks in daily lives and how countermeasures or best practices can be adopted to defend against those threats.

     The contest is divided into two groups: the Student Group for full-time primary and secondary students and the Open Group for all Hong Kong residents. Participants may enter as an individual or as a team.

     Each group will have a champion, a first runner-up and a second runner-up selected by a panel of judges comprising film director Mr Lee Lik-chi and representatives of the organisers and co-organisers. Shortlisted entries from both groups will also be posted online for public voting. The one with the highest number of votes will be given the Most Favorite Award Online. Prizes include trophies, digital products and book and cash coupons.

     The deadline for submissions is September 16 and the results of the contest will be announced in November. The prize presentation ceremony will be held in December.

     Details of the contest and entry forms are available on the InfoSec website at

     The contest is part of Build a Secure Cyberspace 2013, an annual campaign organised by the OGCIO, the HKPF and HKCERT. The campaign, comprising a series of public engagement activities including school visits, seminars and contests, aims to raise public awareness on information security.
