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,宗旨在致力促进香港新闻业界之合作,并推动一切有关香港报业事宜及会员之利益为目标。「公会」发展至今逾六十年,报社会员由最初的四间增至现时的十四间。

早期「香港报业公会」曾主办「最佳新闻摄影记者比赛」以及「最佳记者奖」,以表扬新闻同业出色的表现及成就。随著新闻资讯及内容趋向专业化及多元化,有关项目发展为「香港最佳新闻奖」,并先后增设「最佳新闻版面设计」及「最佳科学新闻报道」等。2016年「香港最佳新闻奖」的奖项増加至75个。 

为了促进业界的发展,「公会」定期举办「研习班」,与不同地区的同业作交流;对於社会的重要议题亦会举办「午餐会」,邀请社会具代表性的人士出席,并担任演讲嘉宾。就政府一些有关传媒法例及条例的草拟, 「公会」更起了积极的作用,设小组研究,以及向当局提供业界的意见,包括近年的版权法及缠扰法等草拟案,另对创立「报业评议会」亦作出不少努力。最近,「公会」与广告业协会一同研拓「直接制版技术」的可行方案。

随著科技的急速发展,为了加强「香港报业公会」的广泛性, 「公会」於2006年4月10日正式设立网站,期能与香港同步一起成长。

 

  


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 2016 gives out a total of 75 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.
