"With the support of Wheelock Properties, National Geographic Magazine Traditional Chinese Edition is hosting the Hong Kong Photo Contest for the seventh consecutive year. Over the past six years, not only has the quantity and quality of the submitted works continued to rise, but the recognition and prominence of the Contest have also increased, motivating us to keep moving forward," said Mr. Ivan Tsoi, "Building on past successes, this year, we especially encourage everyone to participate in the Historic Architecture category. The historic architecture is not only a part of the urban landscape but also a repository of memories, a testament to the blend of Chinese and Western cultures in Hong Kong, and a reflection of our social values. The power of visual storytelling can also reveal the past and present of Hong Kong," Tsoi added.
會德豐地產副主席兼常務董事黃光耀先生表示：「十分榮幸連續七屆與《國家地理》雜誌攜手舉辦『香港攝影大賽2023』，延續每年香港的攝影盛事，為攝影愛好者提供一個國際平台展示他們優秀的作品，實現攝影夢想。香港作為貫通中西文化薈萃的國際都會，不論本地人或旅客都非常熱愛香港的特色和文化，當中不少屹立不倒，具歷史意義和獨特的建築物更吸引了不少攝影者的目光。本屆比賽特別增設『歷史建築』組別，希望攝影者透過拍攝不同歷史悠久的建築記錄香港歲月足跡，一同細味昔日的情懷。」 “It is an honour to co-operate the Hong Kong Photo Contest with National Geographic Magazine Traditional Chinese Edition for the seventh consecutive year, continuing the annual photography event that provides an international platform for photography enthusiasts to showcase their outstanding works and realize their photography dreams. As an international metropolis where the cultures of the East and West meet, Hong Kong has fascinated both locals and tourists with its unique characteristics and culture. Its many historic and unique architectural landmarks have attracted the attention of photographers. The Contest this year introduces a new category, “Historic Architecture.” It is hoped that, through capturing architectures that have stood the test of time, we can record traces of Hong Kong and savour the sentiments of the old days together,” said Mr Ricky Wong, Vice Chairman and Managing Director of Wheelock Properties.
古物諮詢委員會主席蘇彰德教授提及：「非常高興今屆香港攝影大賽新增『歷史建築』組別，透過攝影可以發掘及紀錄香港繁多歷史建築背後的價值和意義，以及周遭環境的故事。『2023古蹟周遊樂暨巡迴展覽』由即日起至十二月舉行，巡迴展覽將介紹十個與綠化及園境相關的法定古蹟和已獲評級歷史建築，承載豐富的歷史内涵和擁有獨特的建築特色，亦與所在或周邊的綠化園境及大自然有深厚的聯繫。」 Professor Douglas So, the Chairman of the Antiquities Advisory Board mentioned, "I am delighted that the 'Historic Architecture' category has been added to this year's Hong Kong Photo Contest. Through photography, we can discover and document the value and significance behind the diverse historical buildings in Hong Kong, as well as the stories of the surrounding environment. The '2023 Heritage Fiesta cum Roving Exhibition' will be held from now until December 2023, featuring 10 designated monuments and graded historic buildings related to greening and landscaping, not only embrace rich history and unique architectural merits, but also closely tie to the green landscape and nature where they are located or in their surroundings.”
