Result toto sgp hari ini
The Singapore Prize is a biennial literary award that recognizes outstanding published works by authors from Singapore. The prize is sponsored by the National Book Development Council of Singapore and endorsed by the government. Winners receive a cash prize and an engraved trophy. In addition, shortlisted works are presented to readers and the public at the World Interiors Expo (WAFX) 2023.
To be eligible for the prize, submissions must have been published in the three years preceding the date of the awards ceremony. The judging process is rigorous and all entries are carefully considered by a panel of judges. The panel includes representatives from the academia, business, and the media. The judging criteria is clear and transparent and the selection of a winner for each category is announced together with the closing nomination deadline.
Founded in 2014, the prize is administered by NUS’ Department of History. It seeks to broaden definitions of what constitutes history by including works that address a time period, theme, or field of Singaporean history from both new and established writers. The winner will be awarded $50,000 Singapore dollars and will be publicly announced. Shortlisted books will also be featured on the program website.
NUS is the only university in the region to have such a prize for both its students and alumni. The winners of the student prize will be able to apply for scholarships that will help them pursue their passions, whether it be in science and technology, arts and humanities, or other disciplines. In addition, they will be able to attend international conferences and competitions, allowing them to expand their professional network and gain an edge over other students at the same stage in their career.
A judging committee selects the final five winners for each of the twelve categories. The winners are crowned at the grand ceremony held in November. The awards night is a celebration of the finalists’ accomplishments, with an emphasis on sustainability. Reuters reports that attendees, which included Britain’s Prince William, were encouraged to wear eco-friendly attire. The royal donned a dark green Alexander McQueen suit.
The five winners of the Earthshot Prize—Accion Andina, GRST, WildAid Marine Programme, S4S Technologies, and Boomitra—were named on Tuesday at a glitzy event in Singapore. During his visit, the prince tried his hand at dragon boating and met with local organizations working to fight climate change. He was joined by the co-founder of the prize, former New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who wore a blue dress from sustainable label Stella McCartney.
Each of the winners will receive a monetary prize and a hand-crafted trophy, along with 12 months of free audiobook access through the StoryTel platform. They will be honoured at a ceremony on 30 November in NUS’ Faculty of Social Sciences. All the nominated films will be screened at the event, which is free to the public. Ticketing is available at all SingPost outlets. For more information, visit the official website.
