The Winner Of The Singapore Prize Will Be Announced Tonight At The Victoria Theatre

A winner of this year’s Singapore prize – a prestigious award for young writers – will be announced tonight at the Victoria Theatre. The winners, chosen from 43 authors in 12 categories, will be awarded in Chinese, English, and Malay. The event will also feature performances by the bands One Republic and Bastille and a performance by the singer Bebe Rexha. It will be hosted by actresses Hannah Waddingham and Sterling K. Brown.

The heir to the British throne was given a rock star welcome when he arrived at Singapore’s Changi Airport on Tuesday evening for the third annual Earthshot prize ceremony. Hundreds of fans cheered and waved homemade signs and Union Jack flags, while some held up photos of his late mother Princess Diana. William greeted them with a smile and a handshake, at one point jokingly asking if they were all in the same crowd.

He later walked the HSBC Rain Vortex, the world’s largest indoor waterfall, which was lit up green to mark his arrival. The Prince is in the city-state for a working visit and will meet ministers, as well as attend the awards ceremony at state-owned Media Corp on Wednesday. He will be joined by the prize’s UK ambassador, Gunnlaugur Erlendsson. The entrepreneur is the founder of ENSO, which creates tyres designed for electric vehicles that are more sustainable and reduce tyre pollution. He was presented with a special prize at the ceremony by the prince in recognition of his work.

The prize is named after the late President John F Kennedy’s ‘moonshot’ speech of 1962, in which he challenged Americans to reach the moon by the end of that decade. The goal of the prize is to find solutions that can be scaled up to tackle global climate change. Last year’s winner included a team from Oman that discovered a way to remove carbon dioxide from the air, and a business that helps families use cleaner-burning stoves.

In order to claim your prize, you must bring the E-Ticket and original photo identification document (NRIC for Singaporeans/PR or passport for foreigners) bearing your name and matching that of your bank records. Please be patient and expect longer waiting times on Mondays and Thursdays, when more claimants are expected.

The Harvard Prize Book (Singapore) recognises individuals who have demonstrated extraordinary altruism and compassion for others over a sustained period of time. The award is open to all Singaporeans who have graduated from Harvard, the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States and one that has a strong international reputation. Its alumni have a long and distinguished record of leadership, public service and excellence.
