“Afford to Relax” Public Space Photo Contest

Project Descriptions

Date: April – June 2013
Project Nature: Symposium / Forum

To encourage the public to discover more about public spaces in Hong Kong, we launched the ‘Afford to Relax’ Public Space Photo Contest from April to June 2013 for people to share their relaxing moments in public spaces.

The photo contest was launched through a customized application on our Facebook Page, and we received about 150 entries. Eight winners were selected based on public voting and professional judging of our jury panel. The prize presentation ceremony was held in Tamar Park in mid-July 2013.

In Dec 2013, winning entries were exhibited in Yau Ma Tei MTR Station’s Community Art Gallery.
