Hong Kong Art Biennial 2003 results announced
The results of the "Hong Kong Art Biennial 2003", one of the largest art competitions in Hong Kong, have been announced following two rounds of judging.
The adjudicators noted that the winning entries, in a wide range of media, showed the diversity of Hong Kong art as well as the styles and characteristics of contemporary Hong Kong artists.
This open competition, now in its 14th year, is presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and organised by the Hong Kong Museum of Art.
