公會簡介

「香港報業公會」於1954年5月10日註冊成立,由當時四大報章《工商日報》、《華僑日報》、《星島日報》及《南華早報》聯合創辦,宗旨在致力促進香港新聞業界之合作,並推動一切有關香港報業事宜及會員之利益為目標。「公會」發展至今逾五十二年,報社會員由最初的四間增至現時的十四間。

早期「香港報業公會」曾主辦「最佳新聞攝影記者比賽」以及「最佳記者獎」,以表揚新聞同業出色的表現及成就。隨著新聞資訊及內容趨向專業化及多元化,有關項目發展為「香港最佳新聞獎」,並先後增設「最佳新聞版面設計」及「最佳科學新聞報道」等。2005年「香港最佳新聞獎」的獎項更多達62項。 

為了促進業界的發展,「公會」定期舉辦「研習班」,與不同地區的同業作交流;對於社會的重要議題亦會舉辦「午餐會」,邀請社會具代表性的人士出席,並擔任演講嘉賓。就政府一些有關傳媒法例及條例的草擬, 「公會」更起了積極的作用,設小組研究,以及向當局提供業界的意見,包括近年的版權法及纏擾法等草擬案,另對創立「報業評議會」亦作出不少努力。最近,「公會」與廣告業協會一同研拓「直接製版技術」的可行方案。

隨著科技的急速發展,為了加強「香港報業公會」的廣泛性, 「公會」於2006年4月10日正式設立網站,期能與香港同步一起成長。

 

  


Introduction

The Newspaper Society of Hong Kong was set up on May 10, 1954 by Hong Kong's four largest newspapers at the time - Kung Sheung Yat Po, Wah Kiu Yat Po, Sing Tao Jih Pao and South China Morning Post. The mission of the Society is to foster cooperation within the newspaper industry and promote the progress and welfare of members. Over the years, the Society's membership has grown from 4 to 14.

In its early days, the Society organised competitions to recognise the outstanding performance of news photographers and reporters. Over time, as the contents of newspapers have become more professional and diversified, those competitions evolved to become the Hong Kong News Awards. New awards introduced in recent years included Best News Page Design and Best Science Reporting. The Hong Kong News Awards 2005 gives out a total of 62 awards.

The Society regularly organises study trips to facilitate exchanges with counterparts from outside Hong Kong. From time to time, distinguished members of the community are invited to speak on issues of topical concern at luncheons. The Society has also been actively involved in reflecting the industry's views on legislation affecting the media. For example, study groups were set up to collate the industry's opinions on bills on copyright and stalking. The Society contributed to the establishment of the Hong Kong Press Council. 

Currently, the Society is working with advertising associations to explore the feasibility of introducing Computer-to-Plate technology.
The website of The Newspaper Society of Hong Kong was launched on April 10, 2006.
