Photo Contest: Asia Society Hong Kong Center

Making an appeal to smartphone photographers!

February 2013 is Asia Society Hong Kong Center’s one-year anniversary at our new home in Admiralty. In order to celebrate this milestone, we are hosting our first photo contest at the Center. We want you to capture unique perspectives of Asia Society Hong Kong Center, with bonus points for capturing the horizontality of the Center, which is unusual in a vertical, skyscraper city like Hong Kong.

Then, upload your favorite photos of the Center on social media and show the world that this former explosives magazine compound has been beautifully transformed — with its heritage intact.

The photo contest runs from January 31 until March 31, 2013, dates that coincide with our exhibition Imminent Domain: Designing the Life of Tomorrow. This exhibition features 12 Hong Kong designers from multiple fields such as lighting, architecture/interior, jewelry, product, fashion and automobile design.

The exhibition showcases the various ways top local creative talents are pushing the boundaries of our imaginations beyond traditions and creating technological innovations that are driving lifestyle changes and affecting our aesthetic perceptions. We want people to start thinking about Hong Kong design, future living and how that will ultimately change our aesthetic perceptions of beauty and enhance the way we live.

Don’t miss this opportunity to show off your photographic skill and share with us!

At the beginning of April we will select ten finalists, each of whom will receive a copy of the publication Imminent Domain: Designing the Life of Tomorrow. Your photos will also be featured on our blog.

How to participate:

  1. Take a picture: using any mobile device, take a photo that captures the uniqueness of the Center.
  2. Tag and share: Add the hashtag #ashk1 to your photos and share them on Instagram, Twitter and Google+. You can also post the photos directly to our Facebook Wall or your wall but add the tag "Asia Society Hong Kong Center."

(To qualify, photos must be taken between January 31 and March 31.)

There is no limit to the number of entries you can submit.

Thank you for participating! Now spread the word, and “instagram” your way to Asia Society Hong Kong Center!

If you have any questions about the contest, please send a tweet to @AsiaSocietyHK or a message on Instagram to our Digital Editor, Wendy Tang, at @wwtang.
