The Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize (HKHRAP), established by Justice Centre Hong Kong in 2013, has played a pivotal role in discovering and encouraging Hong Kong artists to explore the state of human rights both at home and abroad. Justice Centre envisions Hong Kong as a fair and inclusive society where even the most marginalised enjoy fundamental rights and access to justice. 

The 2020 HKHRAP exhibition will take place from 12 May 2020 – 6 June 2020  and is supported by the Goethe-Institut Hongkong and the European Union Office to Hong Kong and Macao. Due to health and safety concerns, we will be moving the awards ceremony and opening event to a digital format. Each of the exhibited works will be available for purchase, with all proceeds supporting the important non-profit work of Justice Centre Hong Kong. Stay tuned for more details on the online auction and digital walk-through of the exhibition!

This partnership between Justice Centre and the Hong Kong arts community is more important now than ever. By supporting the Hong Kong Human Rights Arts Prize, you are also supporting the critical work of Justice Centre Hong Kong on behalf of society’s most vulnerable populations. All funds raised through our crowdfunding portal are tax-deductible and will directly support this event and the frontline work of Justice Centre Hong Kong.

Submissions are now closed and thank you to all the artists who participated! The HKHRAP is open to all Hong Kong-based artists who submit artwork around the theme of human rights. Entries are judged by an esteemed panel of experts from Hong Kong’s art and visual arts community, including Christy Chow, Jeremy Deller, Peter Augustus Owen, Katie Vajda, Chantal Wong and Kacey Wong. The HKHRAP 2020 curator is KY Wong.
