Congratulations to the winners of Hong Kong’s Top Story 2020, and thanks to everyone who took part.

We received a total of 263 original stories by the November deadline, 219 in the junior and 44 in the adult categories. We were very impressed with this response from our talented listeners to our annual English-language writing competition. In a time of pandemic, the theme was, appropriately, "Solitude".

The judges selected eight prize winners – four in each category – with the results announced on the 123 Show on February 25, 2021. The winners are being given book vouchers, with the First Prize winners also receiving a one-hour consultation with renowned author Xu Xi from Mongrel Writers Residence.

The winning entries will be published on our website and later broadcast on RTHK Radio 3.

Once again, a big thanks to all of you for your great support. See you next year !
