Secretary for Culture, Sports & Tourism Kevin Yeung today congratulated Hong Kong illustrator and comic artist Bonnie Pang on winning the silver award at the 17th Japan International MANGA Award with her work Chronos Express.


Mr Yeung said: “Ms Pang’s Chronos Express, with its focus on learning for self-development, has captured people’s hearts. We are thrilled to note that her work stood out from many others and is well recognised by international counterparts. The award once again proves the strong competence of Hong Kong’s creative talent.”


Ms Pang thanked the judges for their recognition. She also thanked the Hong Kong Comics Support Programme, which helps local comic artists to showcase their talent and put their works on the international stage.


Ms Pang was one of 15 comic artists selected in the programme’s second round, which was sponsored by Create Hong Kong. Besides winning the gold award and best comic story award in the programme, her work was recommended by the Hong Kong Comics & Animation Federation for participation in the Japan International MANGA Award.
