Engineering - Dreams into reality : Short Video Competition 2022


Engineering - Dreams into reality

Short Video Competition 2022

About the competition

We are hosting the short video competition to celebrate our 45th Anniversary!

We hope that through the submissions in the competition, we could take this time to reflect on the works of the engineering industry, and to share and celebrate the good works by our predecessors, and each and every one of you.

About the theme

The competition theme has countless possibilities on what it means to you. Engineering is a great scientific adventure, but also a great human adventure. It could be work that you admire, or your own work where you have turned your ideas into reality. It could be a programme you wrote to make your life easier, it could be a road, bridge, building you conceptualised and then built, it could be your work footage showing engineer’s daily life to turn dreams into reality!

You could showcase works from anywhere in the world, or right here in Hong Kong.

Share with us your take on the marvelous works of an engineer that turn dreams into reality, advance civilisation, or even your dreams yet to be turned into reality!
