Bringing books to life

Many famous books have been adapted for television or films, even for radio broadcast, and we've enjoyed these creative adaptations. But what about presenting your favourite book in your very own way? Now is your chance!

Supported by the Standing Committee on Language Education and Research (SCOLAR), the HKFYG Jockey Club Media 21 will organise the "The Hong Kong Reading Competition" between November 2019 and July 2020.

This unique, first of a kind, competition involves two rounds of competition at which students from P4 to S6 will be required to read aloud an excerpt of a book of their choice on video. If shortlisted, they will do a live reading in person at the Hong Kong Book Fair. To prepare for the first round, they would have had training through workshops, teaching them relevant skills so that their videos would be enriched with multimedia presentation pertaining to their chosen text.

In parallel, the Federation will also organise "The Hong Kong Creative Writing Competition", with related trainings. Again, supported by SCOLAR.

Reading, along with a little creative imagination, is a world waiting to be discovered by young people!
