  • The portrayal of suicide and self-harm must be safe and and meet the recommendations of the Centre for Suicide Research and Prevention: https://csrp.hku.hk/media/

  • Entries must not provide explicit or technical details of suicide or self-harm as there is evidence to show that this can lead copycat behaviour. For example, specifying the number and type of tablets used in an overdose or showing someone self-harming.

  • Entries must not romanticise, glorify or simplify suicide or self-harm.

  • 參賽作品不能浪漫化、美化或簡化自殺或自殘行為。

 

Can demonstrate reach and impact

展示影響力

  • All entries should be able to demonstrate impact on a Hong Kong audience either because they were broadcast on a Hong Kong terrestrial or satellite channel, published in Hong Kong or have been on theatrical general release in commercial cinemas in Hong Kong. If only available online, they must have originated in Hong Kong and/or were demonstrably marketed to and/or consumed by a Hong Kong audience.

  • Consideration will be given to the total audience reached, and whether the entry may have triggered additional media coverage or policy change.

  • Credit will also be given to material that reaches a wide demographic, particularly those less likely to be well informed about mental health.

  • For online entries, it is accepted that the audience may be narrower and a successful entry may be aimed at countering self-stigma or offering support and information to those affected by mental health problems.

  • For student journalist, it is accepted that entries may have limited reach if they are produced as part of a journalism course. They

  • will be judged on the understanding and sensitivity shown by the student journalist and recognise their potential.

  • 所有參選作品應能展示對本港受眾的影響,包括在香港固網電視或衛星頻道上播出、在香港出版或在香港戲院公開放映。如僅發表在網上,作品必須為本地原創和 / 或明顯以香港人作為主要受眾。

  • 作品吸引到多少受眾、是否引起更多媒體報導或政策改變,這些因素將被納入考慮範圍。

  • 若作品能吸引廣大受眾,尤其是對精神健康議題不甚了解的人群,同樣是加分項。

  • 對於網上參選作品,我們理解其受眾範圍可能相對狹窄,成功入圍的作品可以是關於如何面對自我污名,或為精神疾病患者提供支援和資訊。

  • 對於學生記者,我們理解作品作為新聞課程的一部分,受眾範圍或許有限。因此,評審將根據學生記者對議題的理解、敏感度,以評估作品潛力。
