Reminiscence of Dazzling Pyrotechnic Show at New Year ‧ New World – Hong Kong Countdown Celebrations Photo Exhibition

Title-sponsored by New World Development Company Limited (the “Group”; Stock Code: 17.HK) for two consecutive years, New Year‧New World – Hong Kong Countdown Celebrations was broadcast live by local and international media including CNN, BBC, AFP, TVBS and CCTV. Riding on the event, New Year‧New World – Hong Kong Countdown Celebrations Photo and Short Film Competition was organised again this year, with Gary Chen, Executive Director and Joint General Manager of New World Development and Daisy Lui, Deputy Executive Director, Hong Kong Tourism Board officiating at the prize presentation ceremony and exhibition. 

This year’s competition achieved an overwhelming response – with the number of participants doubling that of last year’s. To encourage more members of the public to participate in the competition, the Group has introduced the Mobile Photo category and Mobile Short Film category. With the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre and “the most loving moment” as the respective themes of the Open and Mobile categories, winners were voted by a judging panel comprising representatives from New World Development and the Hong Kong Tourism Board and a professional photographer. And for the first time in the competition, public can participate online by voting for the Internet Fans’ Favourite Award under the Mobile category.   

From 27 February to 31 March 2014, all photo winning pieces will be exhibited at New World Tower, K11 Art Mall and Discovery Park – Shopping Centre, allowing members of the public to reminisce about the spectacular scenes of the pyrotechnic show. Details of the roving exhibition are as follows:
