Entries invited for “Capture and Experience Tung Chung” Photo Competition (with photos)
(post date: 26/09/2017)
“Capture and Experience Tung Chung” Photo Competition - Registration starts

The “Capture and Experience Tung Chung - Prequel to Tung Chung New Town Extension 2017” Photo Competition organised by the Civil Engineering and Development Department is inviting entries from September 25. The competition aims at witnessing and capturing the change of Tung Chung from the perspective of members of the public.

The Tung Chung New Town Extension (TCNTE) is one of the key land supply initiatives suggested in the Policy Address in recent years. According to the TCNTE Study, Tung Chung East will be used for comprehensive housing and commercial development while Tung Chung West will adopt a low-density development in order to preserve its rural character. The future population of the whole Tung Chung New Town is expected to reach about 268,000.

Two themes have been set for the competition which are “Landscape, Architecture and Heritage” and “Culture and Living”. Under these themes, members of the public are invited to record, by means of photographs, the daily life of Tung Chung residents, and also the natural landscape, special and historical buildings as well as heritage in Tung Chung before the extension of the new town.

The Competition is divided into an Open Group and a Student Group. There is also an online voting for members of the public to select “My Favourite Photo”.

The deadline for submissions is 5pm on October 25. The details and rules are available on the competition website (www.tcnte-photo.com). For details about the TCNTE, please visit its dedicated website (www.tung-chung.hk).
