Moreover, a theme of “The ARThletes” will be used to promote display art pieces created jointly by local artists and athletes at the venue. This Awards will be a combination of sports, art and technology.
The six categories of the Awards comprise the prestigious “Hong Kong Sports Stars Awards” and the “Cathay Pacific Best of the Best Hong Kong Sports Stars Award” as well as “Hong Kong Junior Sports Stars Awards”, “Hong Kong Sports Stars Award for Team Only Sport”, “Hong Kong Sports Stars Awards for Team Event”, “Hong Kong Most Promising Sports Stars Awards” and “Hong Kong Sports Stars Breakthrough of the Year Awards”.
