SACU-Peking University Essay/Art Competition 2020-2021 Online Awards Ceremony

June 26, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

All SACU members are welcome to join with the students from both the UK and China for this year’s Awards Ceremony of the Essay/Art Competition, organised jointly by SACU and Peking University.

The SACU/ Peking University Essay Competition began in 2015 as part of SACU’s 50th Anniversary celebrations. Now in its 5th year, the aim of the competition is to help young people learn about the development of friendship and understanding between the UK and China and to consider how this might be further promoted. The submissions could be an essay or an artistic form, which could involve for example photography, other visual art, or choreographed dance.

The awards are sponsored by Peking University with three prizes of £100 / £50 /£25 in each of two categories.

  • The judging panel is chaired by Dr. Frances Wood, renowned author on China and former head of the British Library Chinese Collections and SACU Vice President, who will give the panel’s views on the entries.
  • Professor Sun Hua of Peking University will join from Beijing. Prof Sun Hua is an expert in historical figures who have contributed to building friendship between the peoples of China and the West.

SACU is grateful for the support and sponsorship of Peking University for the Essay Competition.

This event will be held by Zoom – the link was sent out to members in the June newsletter and a reminder will be sent three days before the event.
