Spirit of Hong Kong Awards

Established in 2013, the Spirit of Hong Kong Awards shine a light on Hong Kong’s unsung heroes, celebrating the genuine spirit of charity, civic awareness and goodwill of these ordinary yet exemplary Hong Kong citizens. The Awards highlight their inspiring stories in overcoming personal challenges, community contribution, acts of self-sacrifice, innovating for good, cultural preservation, good corporate citizenship and tenacious entrepreneurship, and share these on the pages of the South China Morning Post.

Through the Spirit of Hong Kong Awards, it came to light that these heroes might not be celebrities, but they truly are good Samaritans, selfless caregivers and they make a big difference to support the greater community with their dedication and efforts. They might also be otherwise off the radar, but they are survivors against all odds. There is one thing that they all have in common, and that is the embodiment of the true spirit of Hong Kong. They inspire others with their actions.
