Department of Japanese Studies SMLC
Murakami Fuminobu Memorial Prize in Japanese Studies

To honor their late colleague Mr. Murakami Fuminobu (1951-2011), the Department of Japanese Studies and the School of Modern Languages and Cultures at the University of Hong Kong have established the Murakami Fuminobu Memorial Prize in Japanese Studies in February 2012.

The Prize shall be awarded annually under the following regulations:

1. The Prize shall be known as “Murakami Fuminobu Memorial Prize in Japanese Studies.”

2. In keeping with Murakami Fuminobu’s lifelong devotion to the study of Japanese language, literature, thought, film, and culture, one annual award will be offered to a Japanese Studies essay, poem, or other form of expression that best exemplifies excellence in the broadly understood fields of scholarship. The submission may be written in either Japanese or English, and the winning entry will be published on the Japanese Studies website. 

Submissions may include term papers, essays, original poetry, translations, projects, reportage, and film and literary criticism written for a JAPN course. Each entry should be accompanied by an introduction of no more than 500 words (in English or Japanese) presenting the significance of the submission in the context of Japanese Studies. Please submit either a hard copy of these materials to the Office of the School of Modern Languages and Cultures (5/F Run Run Shaw Tower) or a soft copy via email to yshyeung@hku.hk by June 15, 2016.

The competition will be held annually and judged by members of the Memorial Essay Prize Committee. The winner will receive the award at the SMLC Award Ceremony.

3. There shall be one prize of the value of HK$1,000 annually.
