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,旨在促進香港新聞業界的合作,推廣報業發展,關注會員利益。公會發展至今逾六十年,會員報章由最初的四家增至現時的十三家,包括《AM730》、《大公報》、《中國日報香港版》、《文匯報》、《明報》、《信報》、《南華早報》、《星島日報》、《英文虎報》、《香港商報》、《香港經濟日報》、《香港仔》及《新晚報》。

公會早期曾主辦最佳新聞攝影記者比賽及最佳記者獎,以表揚新聞同業出色的表現及成就。隨著報章的內容趨向專業化及多元化,有關項目演變為每年定期舉辦的香港最佳新聞獎,獎項數目增加至七十多個。為了促進業界的發展,公會經常舉辦研習班和午餐會,與本地和海外同業交流,也會就關於新聞界的議題向當局反映業界意見。就創立香港報業評議會(2000)、香港複印授權協會(2001)、香港新聞教育基金(2006)和報網通(2020),公會作出不少努力。


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 its members. Over the years, the Society's membership has grown from four to 13: AM730, Ta Kung Pao, China Daily (Hong Kong Edition), Wen Wei Po, Ming Pao, Hong Kong Economic Journal, South China Morning Post, Sing Tao Daily, The Standard, Hong Kong Commercial Daily, Hong Kong Economic Times, Lion Rock Daily and The New Evening Post.

In its early days, the Society organized competitions to recognize the outstanding works of news photographers and reporters. Over time, as the contents of newspapers became more professional and diversified, those competitions evolved to become the annual Hong Kong News Awards, which now give out more than 70 awards. To promote the development of the news industry, the Society organizes study trips and luncheons to facilitate exchanges with local and overseas counterparts. On issues of topical concern to the press, the Society reflects the industry's views to the authorities. The Society contributed to the establishment of the Hong Kong Press Council (2000), Hong Kong Copyright Licensing Association (2001), Journalism Education Foundation (2006) and NewsocHub (2020).
