Call for nominations: Young China Watcher of the Year Award

We need the help of NüVoices to recognise the brightest talent in the China watching community.

Young China Watchers (YCW) is excited to announce the second annual Young China Watcher of the Year Award.

The award seeks to recognise a young professional who has made an extraordinary contribution to the global understanding of China, be that in the realm of politics, business, academia, or civil society. The initiative aims to elevate the work of up-and-coming talent within the global community of China observers, thinkers and doers.

Our panel of judges is a diverse group of experienced China watchers. They are:

  • Jamil Anderlini, Asia Editor of the Financial Times
  • Juliana Liu, Editor at Inkstone
  • Kerry Brown, Professor of Chinese Studies and Director of the Lau China Institute at King’s College, London
  • Mimi Zou, Fangda Career Development Fellow in Chinese Commercial Law at St Hugh’s College, University of Oxford
  • Duncan Clark, Chairman of BDA China and author of Alibaba: The House That Jack Ma Built

At last year’s award ceremony our inaugural winner, Oma Lee, a rising star in China’s non-profit sphere, gave a talk on the importance of finding one’s sweet spot in the ever-changing world of China watching. This year’s winner will be honoured at a celebration held on November 2, 2019 at King’s College London.

Nominations for the award are welcome until Wednesday 9th October, 11:59pm BST. Check out more details and nominate here.
