To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Revitalising Historic Buildings Through Partnership Scheme (Revitalisation Scheme), the Commissioner for Heritage's Office of the Development Bureau held an Instagram photo competition on historic buildings under the Revitalisation Scheme from April to May to pick the best photo of each of the 11 historic buildings from Batches I to III of the Revitalisation Scheme. The award-winning photo for “Hong Kong News-Expo” (HKNE) was taken by Mr Wong Chak-hon.

A batch III historic building, HKNE was revitalised from the former Bridges Street Market into Asia’s first exhibition-cum-education facility with news as the main theme and opened in December 2018.  At HKNE, visitors will be able learn more about the development of newspapers, radio and television news, as well as new media in Hong Kong.  The experiential games enable them to acknowledge the professionalism of news media and recognise the value of journalism to our community.
