What we do
Formed in 2011 in Hong Kong, the WYNG Foundation is a philanthropy that supports both local and international academic, artistic and urban initiatives by facilitating collaborations among institutions and individuals.
Why we do
It seeks to give back to the community by empowering individuals and institutions through support of information exchange platforms – by providing opportunities to acquire, exchange, disseminate and to apply knowledge to achieve a more advanced and a more caring society.
How we do
One of the Foundation’s programmes is the WYNG Media Award (WMA) series, which, through photography, film and literature, engages the public, and promotes positive change. Past themes explored included “Poverty”, “Air”, “Waste”, “Identity”, “Mobility”, “Transition” and “Opportunity”. The theme for the 2019/20 cycle is “Light”.
