Theme

Posties Little Journalist Programme aims to encourage budding reporters to uncover inspiring stories in their community. The organisers will provide expert tips to help participants develop their observational, writing and photography skills.

Participants are required to submit their photo-stories and entries will be judged in terms of writing skills, style, originality, creativity and use of language.

In some instances, there will be a set theme and the judges will then take understanding and interpretation of the theme into consideration as well. 

ELIGIBILITY

The programme is open to all primary school students in Hong Kong.

PUBLISHED STORIES

Winning entries will be published in Posties, and displayed on the website.
