The Harvard Prize Book (Singapore) and the Singapore Literature Prize 2024

Gambling May 23, 2024

The Harvard Prize Book (Singapore) award is given to individuals who exhibit extraordinary altruism in their personal and professional lives, by putting others before themselves. The award is a reminder that the foundations of a healthy society are built upon people who are committed to their communities and, at crucial moments, put the common good before their own interests. The award is an initiative of the Harvard Club of Singapore and Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The awards recognises and celebrates outstanding published works by Singaporean authors in the English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil languages. The main award consists of a cash prize and a commissioned trophy. The runner-up in each language category wins 1,000 Singapore dollars and a book voucher from StoryTel. In addition, the public can also vote online for their favorite shortlisted title in the Readers’ Favorite exercise and the winner of this category will win a commissioned trophy.

This year, a record number of entries were received for the Singapore Literature Prize 2024. The competition is organised by the National Book Development Council of Singapore with support from the National Arts Council and the National Library Board. The judging panel includes a wide range of literary professionals. The prizes were first introduced in 2012 to recognise the best in Singapore literature and to encourage reading in our languages. The Singapore Book Awards are held annually.
