The Singapore Prize is awarded to books that have made a significant contribution to the history and culture of Singapore. It is given out every two years and comes with a cash prize of $3,000 and a trophy.
This year’s shortlisted books include a novel that combines literary fiction with the history of an estate in Singapore, and a story that explores the lives of young people living in a slum. Others focus on the impact of social media on the lives of ordinary citizens.
A book that examines the life of a woman who finds her world turned upside down after being caught up in leftist political movements also made it onto the shortlist. It is called Sembawang, by Kamaladevi Aravindan and Jeremy Tiang (Pan Cheng Lui).
Another shortlisted book, A Floating World, by Daryl Qilin Yam and Pan Zheng Lei (Pan Cheng Lui), tells the story of two men who find themselves stranded in a migrant labour camp in Singapore during the 1970s. It follows them as they try to navigate their way to freedom and find new friends along the way.
One of the biggest winners in this year’s awards was WOHA Architects, who won the world architecture prize for its Kampung Admiralty senior housing development. The 11-story building was designed to promote inter-generational bonding and encourage active aging.
WOHA Architects, which is based in Singapore, also won the prestigious “World Building of the Year” award at the World Architecture Festival. The Kampung Admiralty complex is a 11-story building with communal spaces and gardens, as well as pedestrian walkways linking each block.
This competition is a great opportunity for designers to get their work noticed. It is also a great chance for the industry to celebrate all of the incredible projects that are being built around the world.
The Singapore Literature Prize, meanwhile, is a biennial award that recognises writers in the four languages of the country. The 2022 award is open to authors who are Singaporean or permanent residents of the city-state.
To be eligible for the award, a writer must have written a piece of work in English that is published by an Asian publisher. In addition, the work must have some Singapore element in its narrative.
As a result, the prize is not only an opportunity for authors to get their work seen but also a way for the nation to promote its literary heritage. It is also a great opportunity for the general public to learn more about the rich history of the island state.
This is a prize that has been going strong for over half a century. It has a rich history and it is well worth following if you are a fan of literature in any language.
In recent years, the award has been attracting a lot of attention, and it is no wonder why. It is one of the most prestigious and well-respected prizes in the world.
The winner of this year’s award will be announced at the 2022 Singapore International Violin Competition on Wednesday 14 December. The winner will receive a cash prize of USD $50,000. The second place winner will receive $25,000 and the third place winner will receive $15,000.
