 Showcase “Fearless” of Hong Kong Police to the World – Woman Sergeant won 1st Runner-up in IPA Photo Competition 2020
 
 
International Police Association (IPA) Photo Competition 2020 was held earlier this year for the sake of boosting friendship among police officers around the world through cultural activity. As always, the event attracted overwhelming supports from members who submit their photos to contend for the prize and honour in two categories: Police at Work and Open Category.
 
Woman Sergeant Ms YUEN Mei-ching, member of IPA Hong Kong Section had submitted a photo taken at the scene of TIDERIDER Operation and titled it “Fearless” in her submission this year. There are more than 500 entries from 36 nations participated in the competition. A Judging Panel is formed up by the Cyprus Association of Professional Photographers, which is absolute transparency and objective given that the photos did not indicate any details of the contestants in the assessment.
 
The participating photos were of an extremely high standard, eliciting the most favourable comments from the judges, who stated they found it difficult to distinguish the best ones. Finally, the photo “Fearless” of Woman Sergeant Mei Ching won the 1st Runner-up in the Police at Work category.
 
The winning photo “Fearless” captures the moment of Regional Response Contingent troop advancing in a sweep of rioters after firing tear gas. It is a true reflection of Hong Kong Police Force’s courage and determination to restore law and order without fear.
 
 
 
  向世界展現香港警隊無畏無懼精神 - 女警長於國際警察協會2020年攝影比賽勇奪亞軍
 
 
國際警察協會2020年攝影比賽於今年初順利舉行。比賽目的是透過活動增進國際之間警務人員的友誼,亦可藉著比賽促進文化藝術交流。一如以往,許多會員都積極參與去爭取在警務工作及公開組兩個組別的獎項及殊榮。
 
女警長袁美清今年代表香港分會參加比賽,作品相片拍攝於踏浪者行動,命名《無畏無懼》。比賽共有來自36個國家超過500幅作品參賽,由賽浦路斯專業攝影會擔任評審圑,在評審過程中他們都不會知道參賽相片來自哪個國家,以確保透明度及客觀性。
 
評審圑表示,是次比賽參選作品水準甚高,要從當中挑選最好作品有一定難度。最終女警長的作品《無畏無懼》成功脫穎而出,奪得警務工作組亞軍,為香港爭光。
 
作品相片《無畏無懼》捕捉了總區應變大隊在施放催淚彈後向前推進,掃蕩示威暴徒的一刻,充分展現香港警隊的勇氣和決心去止暴制亂,維護社會治安。
