Christy Leung, a CIE alumnus and fresh graduate of HKBU International Journalism, was awarded the champion in the Best in News Video Reporting category of the 2015-16 China Daily Campus Newspaper Awards.

Christy went to Taipei to cover Taiwan’s legislative election for her award-winning video entitled “Taiwan Election”. She said, “Many young people were actively involved in the election, which came after the protest against the trade pact with China during the Taiwan's Sunflower Student Movement”. I believe that Hong Kong people could contemplate the situation in Taiwan as Hong Kong held its District Council and Legislative Council elections after the Umbrella Movement.”

During her stay in Taiwan, Christy had to prepare three video reports a week and she was always busy with conducting interviews, writing scripts, editing footages as well as dubbing. Fortunately, her team mates helped her so much that she managed to overcome all the challenges. Currently being a broadcast journalist, Christy is looking forward to reporting on the next Taiwan election.  

Organised by the China Daily Hong Kong Edition, the competition received more than 600 entries from 28 universities in Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, and Mainland China.
