> DESCRIPTION

With the mission of encouraging the engagement of artists with the creation of art as well as reviewing the recent developments in the local visual arts scene, the "Hong Kong Contemporary Art Awards 2012" received fervent submission of artworks from nearly a thousand entrants. After two rounds of judging, 97 works are finally selected for the exhibition, including 14 pieces recommended for awards.

The "Hong Kong Contemporary Art Awards", formerly referred to as "Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition", has been organised 17 times since its inception in 1975, and has become an important event in the field of arts in Hong Kong. This open competition provides a platform for local artists to show their talents and accomplishments and serves to promote wider understanding of the distinct quality and characteristics of Hong Kong art. The complete results of awarded and selected entries, including painting, Chinese calligraphy and seal carving, sculpture, photography, installation, video and digital arts will be featured in the exhibition-cum-award presentation ceremony in October, giving the audience a full picture of what comprises  the diverse developments and vitality of Hong Kong contemporary art.
