LCSD Photo-taking and Video-shooting Competition

LCSD Photo-taking and Video-shooting Competition

The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (“LCSD”) organises the “LCSD Photo-taking and Video-shooting Competition” (“the Event”) for those enthusiastic about recording the wonders of everyday life on camera to unleash their artistic sense and talent in photography and videography by capturing the beautiful images and moments of LCSD venues, facilities, events and programmes.

With facilities in all 18 districts across the territory, the LCSD organises a diverse array of recreational, sports, cultural and arts programmes from time to time to enrich the lives of Hong Kong people. If you are a fan of such programmes and good with camera, you should seize this opportunity and take part in the Event by sharing photos or videos on leisure and cultural themes on your Facebook, Instagram, Xiaohongshu or Douyin account. You will have a chance to win fabulous prizes if your entry is selected as the champion, first runner-up, second runner-up or winner of commendation prizes.

Details of the Event

The Event has 3 stages and comprises “Local Group” and “Visitor Group”. Each group has a “Photo Division” and a “Video Division”. All photo and/or video entries must be related to LCSD venues and facilities, programmes and/or the mascots “Enggie Pup” and “Artti Kitty” of the LCSD. You may gain some inspiration from a number of special venues and programmes of the LCSD on this website.

Entrants of “Photo Division” can submit no more than 5 photos in each stage for a maximum of 15 photos in total, whereas entrants of “Video Division” can submit no more than 3 videos in each stage for a maximum of 9 videos in total. Each photo can be supplemented by a caption within 40 words. The maximum length of each video is 1 minute. All entries must contain leisure and cultural elements. Champions, first runners-up, second runners-up and winners of commendation prizes will be selected based on criteria such as relevance to the theme, presentation, composition, atmosphere, attractiveness, techniques and number of “likes” received.
