The Cultural Medallion, instituted in 1979, is the highest artistic accolade awarded to individuals in recognition of their artistic excellence, commitment and contributions in shaping Singapore’s arts and cultural landscape. Since 2001, funds have been set aside to support Cultural Medallion recipients’ continuous artistic pursuit in making a positive impact on Singapore’s arts and cultural development and engaging the wider community through their future projects.


Each Cultural Medallion recipient will be able to access funds of up to $80,000, to support projects that meet the Fund's objectives. This amount could be used for a single project or multiple projects over the recipient's lifetime.
