Social Welfare - Canon HongKong

To express its care to the society, Canon Hong Kong has been organizing various corporate activities and engaging with different charity organizations to help the needy.

Canon PhotoMarathon

Since 2009, Canon PhotoMarathon (CPM) Hong Kong is a competition in which contestants compete to create their photographic masterpieces in line with the assigned themes under time pressure. It is an exhilarating annual event for all photography enthusiasts and the number of contestants has been increasing from 300 in the first year to 3,000 in 2017. Achieving the goal of Imaging CSR, enrollment fees were donated to beneficiaries including Medecins Sans Frontieres (2009), Friends of the Earth (2010), WWF (2011), S.K.H. St. Christopher's Home (2012), Heep Hong Society (2013), St. James’ Settlement (2014-2016), The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups (2017) and Arts with the Disabled Association Hong Kong (2018). Since 2010, the event has been recognized as carbon-neutral after "measure, reduce and offset" to carbon footprints.
