香港报业公会(公会)将一如既往,继续关注及维护业界权益,并致力提高专业水平,加强业界与政府的沟通。近年,报业不断转型创新,成功发展网上业务。可惜的是,传统报章的网上广告,受制于社交媒体及搜索平台的掠夺式经营手法,未能取得合理回报。爲了抵御它们的压榨,阻止它们蚕食报业的盈利和发展空间,公会积极团结及凝聚业界,与时并进,保持竞争力。去年公会结合会员报馆的力量,推动成立自动化广告销售平台「报网通」,发挥群策群力的互助精神,令业界的电子广告业务更为壮大,以应对当前及往后的挑战。

 

「2020年度香港最佳新闻奬」颁奖典礼已于8月4日圆满举行,香港特别行政区财政司司长陈茂波担任主礼嘉宾。今届评奖活动得到业界的大力支持,参赛作品数量超过600多份,获奖作品备受好评。无论报业前景多严峻,传媒生态怎样改变,报纸作为主要的新闻媒体,必须坚守忠于事实的原则,承担社会责任,推动社会进步。

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.
