Tung Chung Prize

The Tung Chung Prize is a one million NTD annual award established by Celia Hong Chien Chinghui in honor of her father, Tungchung Chien, who enriched her life through literature, art, and film. From 2015 to 2017, the prize was given to outstanding writers of Mandarin literature; beginning in 2018, its scope was extended to include all types of artistic creation. Overseen by Hong Foundation Vice Chairman Grace Cheung, the Tung Chung Prize embodies the Foundation’s dedication to “sowing the seeds of culture” by supporting contemporary Taiwanese artists and creators with unique, far-reaching potential in the early conceptual stages of their work. 2018 Tung Chung Prize winner Chiawei Hsu’s Giant Panda, Deer, Malayan Tapir, and East India Company reframes the Internet-of-Things (IoT) as a digitalized version of the colonial barter economy, resulting in cross-cultural exchanges; 2019 Prize winner Hsienyu Cheng’s Assimilator explores the existential anxiety brought about by our dependence on technology; and 2020 Prize winner Peiying Lin’s Inter-(Being) examines the viral ecosystem through the cultural structures that exist between humans and various species.

Hong Foundation

For the past 50 years, Hong Foundation has helped to pioneer innovations in the educational and cultural sectors since 1971, encouraging the creation of non-profit, experimental, and diverse art and performances. Throughout the 70s, the Foundation introduced the public to literary criticism through the publication of the Shu Ping Shu Mu Review of Books and Bibliography magazine, established Taiwan’s first audio-visual library, as well as sponsored the release of campus folk music albums which brought about a revival of the genre. During the rapid economic boom of Taiwan in the 80s, Hong Foundation’s Culture for Business Academy led the way in integrating humanistic learning and business philosophy. The Minlong Forum, conceived of in the 90s, fostered humanities education and an adult reading culture, whereas Project Seek, launched in 2007, is an initiative to support artistic creators across all disciplines through commissions and direct sponsorships. For the next 50 years, Hong Foundation will continue to encourage and support avant-garde concepts and creations, so that this progressive attitude may take root, sprout, and spread throughout all industries and aspects of society. We hope to foster an environment where creation can nurture and invigorate businesses, industries, and society as a whole.
