The contest with the theme "My Place ˙ My People", the contest was co-presented by the Education Bureau and Po Leung Kuk, and aimed to encourage young people to express their perceptions and thoughts through two-dimensionl artwork, so as to develop their creativity and deepen their artistic thinking. It was also hoped that the international event would promote cross-cultural exchanges and help adults better understand young people by appreciating their works of art.

The adjudicators of the HKISAC (2014) included renowned experts in the field of art and art education from around the world, they are Mr. Hoi-chiu Tang, Former Chief Curator (Special Projects) of the Hong Kong Museum of Art; Prof. Jonathan Thomson, Artist and Art Historian; Mr. Schim Schimmel, Artist & Author; Mr. Cyril Boisson, Founder of Cyril Boisson Fine Art LLC & Representative of the Miro Foundation of Barcelona; Prof. Vaughan Rees, Associate Dean, International and (Acting) Deputy Dean, College of Fine Arts, the University of New South Wales, Australia; and Dr. Vanessa Lok-wa Li, Senior Curriculum Development Officer (Visual Arts), Education Bureau.

On display are 63 winning entries which have been selected from over 2,500 entries from 38 countries or regions. The participants' diverse cultural backgrounds yielded a wide variety of styles and messages in the artwork, especially in the 12 entries awarded the Hong Kong Grand Prize. Among them, Verena Leung contrasted the flourishing urban scene of Hong Kong with the humble endeavour of a watch repairer in a detailed wash drawing that expressed the artist's deep gratitude for the contributions of ordinary people. Also with an urban scene as the background, Dominique Kiersten Chu Lim from the Philippines made use of vivid colours and geometric shapes to portray the cheerfulness of a country boy in the city, showing Filipinos' courage in the face of change.
