City Impression@Your Neighbourhood Photographic Competition prize presentation ceremony (with photos)

     The City Impression@Your Neighbourhood Photographic Competition prize presentation ceremony, in which 26 participants received awards, was held at the City Gallery in Central today (November 30).

     The competition was one of the highlights of the "City Impression@Your Neighbourhood" campaign organised by the Planning Department and the City Gallery, and supported by the 18 District Councils. The aim of this competition was to encourage members of the public to portray the most appealing scenes of their neighbourhoods through the camera lens, and to discover their neighbourhoods from new angles. To promote the message of community giving, competition participants were encouraged to donate their prizes to their neighbourhoods or other charity organisations in their district. The "City Impression@Your Neighbourhood" campaign is one of the events under the "Caring Hong Kong" theme of the "Hong Kong: Our Home" Campaign.

     Officiating at the ceremony, the Deputy Director of Planning, Ms Phyllis Li, said she was encouraged by the fervent response to the competition. She was also pleased that half of the award winners donated their prizes to their designated charity organisations.

     The competition comprised two sections - the Secondary School section and the Open section - with the respective themes "A Week in Neighbourhood" and "City Impression@Your Neighbourhood". A champion, two runners-up and 10 outstanding awards were selected for each section.

     The award-winning entries will be exhibited at the "City Impression@Your Neighbourhood" thematic exhibition in the City Gallery from November 30 to January 15, 2014.

     Located at 3 Edinburgh Place, Central, the City Gallery is the first permanent planning and infrastructure gallery in Hong Kong and was officially opened on August 20, 2012. Occupying five storeys with a floor area of more than 3 200 square metres, the gallery offers a host of interactive exhibits to showcase the uniqueness of Hong Kong in the past and the future, as well as to share with the public the vision for city planning and infrastructure projects.
