A singapore prize is an award that is given to a person or company for achieving something notable. This usually comes in the form of money or recognition. It is also a way to show appreciation for someone else’s achievements. The award is usually accompanied by a ceremony. The prizes are awarded for a wide variety of different things.
SG’s prize games are regulated by the state and are designed to be fair. They are popular with thousands of people who play them every day. While there are some risks associated with playing these games, they are not as high as other forms of gambling.
The prestigious Singapore Prize is awarded to outstanding works of literature and history published in the four official languages of Singapore – Chinese, English, Malay and Tamil. This year, a total of 12 top prizes were awarded for fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
This year, the SG Prize’s logo and visual identity was redesigned by H55 Studio, an award-winning communication consultancy based in Singapore. The new design is a contemporary interpretation of the ‘ring’ symbol commonly found on world maps and in atlases. It reflects the concept of ‘Rings of Prosperity’ and the belief that books are a means of “connecting communities and connecting them to the world”.
In addition, four authors also beat out their competition in the Readers’ Favourite awards, determined by public vote. The winners are rma cureess (Rama Suresh), Ali bin Salim, Daryl Qilin Yam and Pan Zheng Lei (Pan Cheng Lui). They each win S$1,000 in cash, together with book vouchers worth $50.
During the ceremony, the Prince of Wales and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, announced that the 2023 Earthshot prize would be held in Singapore. The event will see global leaders, businesses and investors gather to accelerate solutions to the planet’s biggest environmental challenges. It will include local activations for citizens to experience Earthshot solutions and feature performances by internationally renowned musicians and artists.
The winners of the inaugural SG Breakthrough Prize were presented with their award at a ceremony on May 4. 63 teams had entered the nation-wide contest, which saw them provided seed funding and access to mentors, potential funders, and discussions with policymakers. In addition to the grand prize of $500,000, the eight shortlisted teams also won a range of other rewards, including mentoring and coaching sessions.
The coveted award was established to recognise and honour Singaporean writers of both fiction and non-fiction in the Chinese, English and Malay languages. The finalists were selected by an expert jury comprising writers Balli Kaur Jaswal and Yong Shu Hoong and National Library Board assistant chief executive Gene Tan.
