Results for the Hong Kong Press Photographers Association competition Focus on the Frontline 2015 were announced on March 12, 2016.
Photographer Ko Chung-ming, of Next Magazine, won First Prize in the Photo Story section. His series follows Uncle Hung, who suffered from terminal nasopharyngeal cancer and lived in an alleyway. He was given public housing, but moved back to the alleyway in two weeks.
Uncle Hung worked as a cleaner on a monthly wage of five to six thousand dollars. “I still have arms and legs, why would I need to?” he said, when asked about receiving comprehensive social security assistance from the government.
