A singapore prize is a type of award that is given to someone or something for achieving a notable accomplishment. These awards are usually accompanied by a ceremony and come with some form of financial reward. They are given for a wide variety of things, from sporting events to charitable works.
The NUS Singapore History Prize was established in 2014 after an anonymous donor provided an endowment to support it. It is a biennial award for publications that make a significant contribution to the understanding of Singapore’s history. The work can cover any period of Singapore’s history, and it can be either fiction or non-fiction. The NUS Department of History administers the prize.
In addition to the main prizes, the competition also offers several other honorees in each category. These include the audience choice winner and a jury special mention. The winner of the main prize receives both a cash prize and an engraved trophy. The winner of the audience choice will also get a free ticket to next year’s festival.
The Singapore Literature Prize is a biennial award in Singapore that recognizes outstanding published works by Singapore authors in any of its four official languages: Chinese, English, Malay and Tamil. It is a competition organised by the National Book Development Council of Singapore and endorsed by the Government of Singapore.
It is the most prestigious literary award in Singapore and one of the most respected in Asia. Previously, the award was known as the Epigram Books Fiction Prize, but in 2023 the name was changed to reflect its broadened scope and increased prestige. The winner of the prize receives a cash prize of $3,000 as well as an engraved trophy.
A breezy mash-up of prose and comics about a multinational company run by Asian demons and a short introduction to the experiences of comfort women in Singapore were among this year’s winners at the Singapore Book Awards. ‘Work-Life Balance: Malevolent Managers and Folkloric Freelancers’ by Benjamin Chee and Wayne Ree and The Accidental Malay by Karina Bahrin were both named Best Literary Work.
The inaugural Dr Alan HJ Chan Spirit of Singapore Book Prize was launched on April 18. It aims to recognise publications that champion mindsets and values important in the shaping of Singapore, such as equality, diversity, religious harmony, meritocracy and resilience. The first competition offered 12 top prizes in Chinese, English and Malay and Tamil, the most for a Singapore book award. Previously, fiction competed with poetry for a single prize in each language. The prize is sponsored by a $1 million donation from philanthropist Alan Chan.
