2021-2023年度香港報業公會執行員會選舉結果

    

香港報業公會於2021年9月17日舉行了第六十七屆周年會員大會及新一屆議會會議,推選了李祖澤先生為會長、郭艷明女士為主席、譚衛兒女士及郭曉亭女士為副主席、名譽秘書為張介岭先生、名譽司庫為黎振輝先生。新一屆議會亦通過委任盧覺麟先生為總幹事,盧永雄先生為新聞發言人。

 

周年會員大會選出全體16名議會委員:盧覺麟先生﹝AM730﹞、于世俊先生﹝大公報﹞、羅政先生﹝文匯報﹞、伍國耀先生﹝中國日報香港版﹞、甘煥騰先生﹝明報﹞、郭艷明女士﹝信報﹞、金衍倢女士﹝南華早報﹞、譚衛兒女士﹝南華早報﹞、郭曉亭女士﹝星島日報﹞、蔡晋博士﹝星島日報﹞、蕭世和先生﹝英文虎報﹞、林映先生﹝香港仔﹞、張介岭先生﹝香港商報﹞、黎振輝先生﹝香港經濟日報﹞、盧永雄﹝巴士的報﹞及鍾蘊晴女士﹝新晚報﹞。 

 

香港報業公會(公會)將一如既往,繼續關注及維護業界權益,並致力提高專業水平,加強業界與政府的溝通。近年,報業不斷轉型創新,成功發展網上業務。可惜的是,傳統報章的網上廣告,受制於社交媒體及搜索平台的掠奪式經營手法,未能取得合理回報。爲了抵禦它們的壓榨,阻止它們蠶食報業的盈利和發展空間,公會積極團結及凝聚業界,與時並進,保持競爭力。去年公會結合會員報館的力量,推動成立自動化廣告銷售平台「報網通」,發揮群策群力的互助精神,令業界的電子廣告業務更為壯大,以應對當前及往後的挑戰。

 

「2020年度香港最佳新聞奬」頒獎典禮已於8月4日圓滿舉行,香港特別行政區財政司司長陳茂波擔任主禮嘉賓。今屆評獎活動得到業界的大力支持,參賽作品數量超過600多份,獲獎作品備受好評。無論報業前景多嚴峻,傳媒生態怎樣改變,報紙作為主要的新聞媒體,必須堅守忠於事實的原則,承擔社會責任,推動社會進步。

The Newspaper Society of Hong Kong (NSHK) has continued to work on various fronts to raise the professional standards of journalism, safeguard the interests of the industry and maintain close communication with the Government. The newspaper industry has  broken new ground in recent years in responding to technological developments and readers’ growing use of electronic platforms. Regrettably, they have been prevented from obtaining a reasonable return from electronic advertising because of the predatory business practices of social media and search engine platforms. In order to safeguard the profitability and sustainability of newspapers, members of NSHK pulled together to raise the competitiveness of the industry by setting up “Newsochub”, a one-stop online advertising platform last year. It has since boost the revenue of participating newspapers and achieved satisfactory promotion for advertisers.

 

The 2020 Hong Kong News Awards Presentation Ceremony was held on 4 August to recognize the outstanding works of journalists and officiated by the Financial Secretary of the HKSAR, Mr. Paul Chan Mo-po. We received an overwhelming response from the industry with more than 600 entries were submitted to this year’s competition. Regardless of the changing ecology of the media, newspapers as major news providers must abide by the principle of seeking truth, and be socially responsible in fostering social progress.
