公会简介

香港报业公会於1954年5月10日注册成立,由当时四大报章《工商日报》、《华侨日报》、《星岛日报》及《南华早报》联合创办,旨在促进香港新闻业界的合作,推广报业发展,关注会员利益。公会发展至今逾六十年,会员报章由最初的四家增至现时的十三家,包括《AM730》、《大公报》、《中国日报香港版》、《文汇报》、《明报》、《信报》、《南华早报》、《星岛日报》、《英文虎报》、《香港商报》、《香港经济日报》、《香港仔》及《新晚报》。

公会早期曾主办最佳新闻摄影记者比赛及最佳记者奖,以表扬新闻同业出色的表现及成就。随著报章的内容趋向专业化及多元化,有关项目演变为每年定期举办的香港最佳新闻奖,奖项数目增加至七十多个。为了促进业界的发展,公会经常举办研习班和午餐会,与本地和海外同业交流,也会就关於新闻界的议题向当局反映业界意见。就创立香港报业评议会(2000)、香港复印授权协会(2001)、香港新闻教育基金(2006)和报网通(2020),公会作出不少努力。


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).
