Implemented since 1999, the examiner system is the process by which independent examiners are recruited from within the industry to form a panel to assess grant applications and make recommendations for the ADC's consideration. Recognising the benefits of peer assessment, the system also ensures that the process of grant assessment will be conducted fairly and impartially and is free of conflicts of interest.

Open recruitment and invitation to join the panel of examiners is done on a regularly basis. Examiners are tasked with the assessment of an array of grants administered by the ADC.

The declaration of conflict of interest is vital to the effectiveness of the examiner system. Examiners are required to declare all interests and abide to the “Prevention of Bribery Ordinance” and "Code of Conduct" set out by the ADC in order that the process of grant assessment and the writing of evaluation reports remain firmly independent and free of all potential conflicts. Particular importance is given to the protection of intellectual property rights and the safeguards of confidentiality during the assessment process.

To Prevent Conflict of Interest

The application adjudication system in ADC is formulated based on principles of peer assessment. The ADC regularly invites and recruits professionals from the relevant art fields to be ADC examiners through voluntary nominations and open invitations in newspapers. These examiners will assess funding applications and make grant recommendations for ADC's consideration. There are currently around 400 ADC examiners.

To prevent conflict of interest situation, ADC will only assign examiners who do not have any conflicts with the application being assessed, as well as those applications being assessed in the same group. The ADC has also put in place relevant mechanisms and procedures, such as declaration of personal interests, assigning qualified examiners from the pool of examiners to assess each application through an objective random process so as to minimize any potential conflict of interest.

Arts Specialties

Examiners are grouped under the artforms that they are specialized in and ADC will arrange adjudication and assessment assignments according to the most relevant artforms (see the table below). Within each artform, ADC will enlist examiners with professional knowledge in different genres and fields to cater for the wide variety of project applications received. For instance, the music artform consists of experts of Chinese music, western music, vocal/choral music, contemporary music. For the dance artform, experts of ballet, Chinese dance, modern dance, folk dance are included in the examiner list. While for visual arts, examiners include those with expertise in Chinese painting and calligraphy, seal-engraving, western arts–2D (oil painting/ print-making/ comics/ water colour painting/ sketching), design, 3D (ceramics/ sculpture/ glass), photography, installation, mixed materials, new media, architecture, etc.

If ADC receives an application other than the artforms or categories listed below, it will try its best to invite suitable experts of relevant professional background to assist in the adjudication of the applications.
