The Human Rights Press Awards, now in their 25th year, are organised by the Foreign Correspondents’ Club Hong Kong, Amnesty International Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Journalists Association.

Categories include Breaking News, Feature, Commentary, Multimedia, Video, Audio and Photography. Please go to the website for more details.

Each entry must cite the article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that the work seeks to address. This landmark document sets out the inalienable rights to which every person is entitled. The full text is available here: https://www.un.org/en/universal-declaration-human-rights/index.html

Please mark your calendars and be ready to submit your work!

The online entry form will be open on 1 January 2021 at:

FCC Minimum Spend Period Extended

FCC Minimum Spend Period Extended
      
While the FCC has remained open during the restrictions imposed in Hong Kong as a result of the coronavirus, the Board of Governors is aware that it has been more difficult than usual for some members to enjoy the club’s facilities. The board has therefore decided that the minimum spend due on members’ September accounts will be rolled over for another three months. This means that no minimum spend charge will appear on members’ September bills and the minimum spend will be HK$ 1,800 for the six-month period from 1 July, to appear on December bills.
               
Once again, the club will offer the opportunity to purchase vouchers for any minimum spend not used by 31 December. We would also like to remind members who purchased vouchers to cover the minimum spend for the first six months of this year that those vouchers expire 30 November.
Thank you for your continued support of the FCC.
