Congratulations to our poets
Radio 3 is delighted to announce the winners of RTHK's very first Hong Kong English Poetry Competition. After receiving a fantastic response of 106 entries from our listeners, the judges selected the three prize-winners, with the results announced at a ceremony held on August 20 at Broadcasting House. The awards were presented by Acting Deputy Director of Broadcasting (Programmes) Kirindi Chan Man-kuen; Henrik Hoeg from Peel Street Poetry; and Hugh Chiverton, Head of English Programme Service at RTHK.
For our inaugural competition, we called for entries under the theme of “Birth”. The winning pieces will be published on our website, as well as the Radio 3 Facebook Page and Noreen Mir on RTHK Radio 3.
The MC for the Kong English Poetry Competition Awards 2019 was Gladys Chiu.
