TUNG CHUNG PRIZE
The Tung Chung Prize is a 1 million NTD annual award to support an exceptional artist’s creative output for one year. The prize was established in 2015 by Hong Foundation’s Chairperson Celia Ching-Hui CHIEN in honor of her father, Tung-Chung CHIEN, who enriched her life through literature, art, and film. The Tung Chung Prize was awarded to outstanding writers of Mandarin literature from 2015 to 2018, and to artists whose international perspective resonates throughout and beyond greater Mandarin cultures from 2019 to 2021. Overseen by Hong Foundation Vice Chair Grace CHEUNG, the Tung Chung Prize embodies the spirit of “cultural venture capital”, by supporting creators and artists at the early concept stage of creative work.
