To recognise young artistic talents and encourage them to continue pursuing excellence in the arts and inspire others.

About the Young Artist Award

The Young Artist Award was introduced in 1992 to encourage the development of young artistic talents in Singapore. It represents Singapore's highest award for young art practitioners, aged 35 years and below in the year of the award, whose artistic achievements and commitment have distinguished them among their peers. It encourages young practitioners to continue pursuing excellence in the arts, and to look towards inspiring others. To date, the Young Artist Award has been conferred on 149 recipients.

 

Each recipient of the Award will receive a trophy, a certificate and will be eligible for the Young Artist Award Grant of up to $20,000 that supports their future artistic pursuits and development.
