The great contrast of use of colour also serves as a reminder that sexual harassment is evil and intolerant. Overall, the poster is simple, yet effective, with a clear call to action that encourages viewers to take a strong stand against sexual harassment.

Title: From food to good

Theme: Diversity and Inclusion

Merit: Cheng Yu Sang Vincent (From food to good) In this poster, I used food as a metaphor to show how a society needs diversity and inclusion to thrive.


Merit: Denise Tang Ramos (Faculty of Social Sciences)

Title: From Anyone to No One

Theme: Preventing Sexual Harassment

Merit: Denise Tang Ramos (From Anyone to No One) People hold stereotypes on who “can” or “cannot” be sexually harassed. For example, how men cannot be victims, how women’s clothing affects their potential to be victims etc. In order to prevent sexual harassment, we need to be aware of the fact that it could happen to anyone. Without prejudice, more survivors would come forward. More offenders will be punished. Fewer sexual harassment cases will be experienced. With the daunting realization that it could happen to ANYONE, we are, in an equally daunting way, reminded that it should happen to NO ONE.


Merit: Tsui Tsz Shan (Faculty of Architecture)

Title: Preventing Sexual Harassment

Theme: Preventing Sexual Harassment

Merit: Tsui Tsz Shan (Preventing Sexual Harassment) The poster aims to raise awareness of sexual harassment and how it can happen to anyone, anytime regardless of gender. We should strive to create a safe campus environment for all where people can be comfortable in their own skin. Don’t be a bystander, speak out.


Merit: Wong Tsz Ching Ruby (Faculty of Arts)

Title: Inclusion in HKU - understand, appreciate & accept

Theme: Diversity and Inclusion

Merit: Wong Tsz Ching Ruby (Inclusion in HKU understand appreciate accept) This poster aims to promote inclusion in HKU. Inclusion can be achieved when we understand the uniqueness of each individual among the community, then we shall try to appreciate each other. On the poster visual design, The shaking hands of two individuals from different background (race, gender) signifies “acceptance”. The acceptance of our uniqueness and differences. And the acceptance of every one of us in the community. Hopefully this poster reminds every one of us to understand, appreciate, and accept - which cultivates inclusion.


Merit: Zhou Wanting (Faculty of Architecture)

Title: 16% of the world

Theme: Diversity and Inclusion

Merit: Zhou Wanting (16% percent of the world) According to the World Health Organization, there are “an estimated 1.3 billion people – or 16% of the global population – experience a significant disability.” Yet they are constantly underrepresented.
