The Group has been a keen supporter of art and culture. With a mission of "Building for Tomorrow", Wharf strives to provide appropriate resources and opportunities to groom our next generation. The Group has introduced "The Wharf Hong Kong Secondary School Art Competition" ("Competition") since 2011 to boost young people's creativity and foster their interests in arts and culture, with an ultimate goal of promoting art development in Hong Kong.
The Competition receives an overwhelming response of entries, with various concepts and exceptional quality demonstrated. About 2,000 entries covering diversified themes and various art forms are received from more than 200 secondary schools across 18 districts in Hong Kong annually.
In addition to cash prizes and book vouchers, the Top 18 entrants will be invited to join an overseas arts and cultural exchange. The top 54 entrants will be invited to join an Art Summer Day Camp. Qualified winners are eligible to apply for the Wharf Art Scholarship for a fully subsidized scholarship for a bachelor programme on creative art in a local or oversea tertiary institution of their choice.
Roving exhibitions for the winning and outstanding entries will be held in the Group's malls including Harbour City, Times Square and Plaza Hollywood to further share talents' creativity with locals and tourists alike.
