Introduction of Organiser:

The Hong Kong Digital Entertainment Association (HKDEA) was established in 1999 as a non-profit making association comprised of digital entertaining corporations. It is dedicated to the betterment of the local digital entertainment industry.

HKDEA's missions are:

  • To promote technology development within the industry in order to deliver internationally competitive products;
  • To explore and develop new markets;
  • To project a positive image associated with playing video games;
  • To discourage software piracy; and
  • To facilitate communication and interaction between industries, including toys, entertainment and video games, which are associated with digital entertainment.

    The HKDEA was founded during a time when there were relatively few local digital entertainment establishments. It was thus established to provide a mechanism upon which local developers could cooperate to ensure industry-wide prosperity.

    Since its establishment, the HKDEA has organised a variety of activities and events including:

    • Hong Kong ICT Awards: Best Digital Entertainment Award
    • Hong Kong Digital Entertainment Excellence Awards
    • Conferences
    • Overseas Promotions
    • Local Promotions
    • HKDEA Web Site Building
    • Seminars and Training
  • Background:

    The Hong Kong ICT Awards aims at recognising and promoting outstanding information and communications technology (ICT) inventions and applications, thereby encouraging innovation and excellence among Hong Kong’s ICT talents and enterprises in their constant pursuit of creative and better solutions to meet business and social needs.

    The Hong Kong ICT Awards was established in 2006 with the collaborative efforts of the industry, academia and the Government. Steered by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer, and organised by Hong Kong ICT industry associations and professional bodies, the Awards aims at building a locally espoused and internationally acclaimed brand of ICT awards.

    There are eight categories under the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2018. There will be one Grand Award in each category, and an “Award of the Year” will be selected from the eight Grand Awards by the Grand Judging Panel.
