Awards and Prizes in Singapore

A wide range of awards and prizes are awarded in Singapore to honour achievements in different fields. These include academics, business people, sportspeople and community leaders. Some of these are national awards, while others are instituted by private organisations and companies. These awards are given in recognition of an individual’s contribution to society, while others are presented for a particular achievement or contribution. Some of these awards are monetary, while others are presented with a trophy or plaque.

An Indian maker of solar-powered dryers, a soil carbon marketplace and groups that help make electric car batteries cleaner, restore Andean forests and bolster enforcement to deter illegal fishing were among those who won this year’s Earthshot Prize at a ceremony in Singapore on Tuesday. Britain’s Prince William, who founded the award with his environmental charity the Royal Foundation, told the audience that the solutions presented by all 15 finalists proved that “hope does exist” as climate change takes its toll on the world.

This is Publishing Perspectives’ 131st awards-related report in the 137th day since our operations began on January 3. More on book publishing and the Singapore literary scene is here, while more on the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic is here.

The prestigious Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize 2024 went to Prof Gertjan Medema, Principal Microbiologist at KWR Water Research Institute, for his pioneering work on wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) for the detection of human viruses in urban waters. His discoveries and contributions to WBE have revolutionised the application of the technique for water quality monitoring, particularly during the coronavirus pandemic.

In the 2023 edition of TADP, Approach Design Studio and Zhejiang University Engineering Design Group were crowned World Building of the Year for their Huizhen High School. This is the first time that a Chinese project has won the top prize in this category of the award. TADP is supported by Iris Ceramica and organised in partnership with WAF, Make Architects and Sir John Soane’s Museum.

The prestigious Lee Kong Chian Scholarship was introduced in 2017 to encourage and recognise outstanding students in the field of architecture at the University of Hong Kong. The scholarship is valued at S$50,000 and will be awarded annually to the top-performing full-time Master of Architecture students. The Scholarship is made possible by an expendable gift from P&T Consultants Pte Ltd.

The Sidney Prize and Other Awards For Young Writers

The sidney prize is a monthly award for investigative journalism that exposes social and economic injustices. It is also a great way to get your name out there in the writing community, and can help you build up your confidence. It can also be a great source of income for those who are looking to make a living from their writing skills. There are several different ways to win the prize, but it is important to understand its requirements and criteria before applying.

In addition to the Sydney Prize, there are many other awards for young writers. These include the Overland Neilma Sydney Short Story Prize, which is hosted by Overland magazine and the Malcolm Robertson Foundation. The winner of this prize receives $5,000 and their work will be published in Overland. The prize is open to writers from anywhere in the world.

Sophia Jactel, an art history major at Syracuse University, won the Sydney Prize for her paper, “Domesticity and Diversions: Josef Israels’ The Smoker as a Symbol of Peasant Culture and Role of Home in Nineteenth-Century Holland.” Her research into the print helped inform the exhibition Domesticities: The Art of Daily Life at MoMA last fall. She is currently preparing her senior thesis on Israelis’ depictions of women in the early twentieth century.

One of the most exciting things about the Sydney Prize is that it is open to people from all backgrounds and disciplines. This allows students from a wide variety of schools to apply, and gives them the chance to show their talent. Students should also keep in mind that the more they put into their application, the more likely they are to be successful.

Applicants can also take advantage of scholarships that are available to them. These scholarships can provide students with the opportunity to learn engineering from some of the best in their industry. Among the many scholarships that are available for engineers, one is the SS Sydney Prize scholarship, which encourages female engineers.

The Sydney Prize is named in honor of the late Sidney Hook, an eminent philosopher and longtime member of Phi Beta Kappa. This national award recognizes scholars who have achieved distinction in scholarship, undergraduate teaching, and leadership in the cause of liberal arts education. Those selected are honored at the Society’s Triennial Council Meeting.

Each year, the Sidney J. Levy Award is given to the author of the best dissertation-based article in the field of Consumer Culture Theory (CCT). Applicants are encouraged to submit their articles in any area of CCT. Honorable mentions will be awarded as well. All submissions will be judged by a panel of distinguished scholars in the field. In order to be eligible, an article must have been published in the previous year. The article must be a chapter or an excerpt from the dissertation and must be written in English.
