A photo exhibition is being held in Hong Kong's Central Library from June 28 to July 4, featuring a collection of photos taken by photographers from Hong Kong and mainland's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. More than 40 prize-winning photos, as well as over 300 photos by famous photographers from both regions were on display.

This year marks not only the 20th anniversary of HK's return, but also the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the Autonomous Region of Inner Mongolia.

Cheng Yiu-tong, Chairman of HK Celebrations Association, said at the opening ceremony that though there were exchanges between HK and Inner Mongolia before with the Belt and Road Initiative there will be more chances for the two regions, though far apart to walk closer together in the future.

A batch of rewards was bestowed to the winners of a Hong Kong photography contest. Hui Yau Tat won First Prize of the Open Group of the 'HK-Inner Mongolia Youth Photography Contest' with his photo 'The Beauty of Hong Kong.' He is proud to present the beauty of Hong Kong to more people.

When asked about his visits to places on the mainland by CCTV.com, he said his impression of Chinese mainland is that it is developing so fast that he must hurry up to take more photos on every trip, otherwise the places might capture a totally new look on his next trip.

Second Prize winner of the Youth Group Contest, a middle school girl - 14-year-old Zhou Yuanzhi, said she took the Golden Bauhinia and Convention & Exhibition Centre as her focus, since she thinks these two best represent the landmarks of Hong Kong.

She also expressed her anticipation to join in a 500 group for the upcoming Inner Mongolia tour in July, also organized by HK Celebrations Association for prize winners, along with other youngsters from HK.

Cheng Yiu-tong believes this kind of activity will enhance Hong Kong youth understanding of culture and customs of Mongolia, as well as the people and landscapes in Inner Mongolia, which will help boost exchanges between Hong Kong and Inner Mongolia.
