For its second year, the Singapore prize will be awarded to five winners who are dedicated to advancing the planet. The prizes will be used to accelerate their projects and create visible effects. This year’s award ceremony will take place in Boston and will have performances from musicians and artists. The event will also include a green carpet where the winners will be awarded.
This year, the competition will have a broader scope than in the past. It will include new categories such as a youth innovation and a global citizen category. The new categories will be aimed at encouraging young people to contribute to the world in their own ways. The prize will be awarded to the most innovative projects in each of these categories. The winning innovations and ideas will be selected by a jury consisting of distinguished experts in each of the categories.
The first prize for the competition was awarded to a group of four people who were responsible for a new way of managing water and wastewater. This method has allowed the city to make substantial savings in energy costs and reduce pollution levels significantly. The other finalists in the water management category included three organisations that were using technology to clean up waste water, and two organisations that had developed new techniques for dealing with stormwater runoff.
Another winner was a company that is developing a drone platform to collect data on the condition of forests. The system will allow companies to monitor and analyse the health of forests at a much quicker rate than current methods. The platform will also help to identify potential risks. The company’s drones will be able to detect damage, and the information they gather will allow foresters to react quickly.
One of the oldest Singapore prizes is the Singapore Sweep, which was launched in 1969 by Singapore Pools to raise funds for our first national stadium. The game has since expanded and now has a total prize pool of more than $2.3 million. You can find more information about the prizes available by visiting the official website of the Singapore Prize.
Last year, a housing complex for elderly residents beat more flashy buildings to win the World Building of the Year title at the World Architecture Festival (WAF). It is only the third time that a project in Asia has won this top prize, which is one of the most prestigious in the architectural community. Other previous winners include a post-earthquake reconstruction project in China and an extension to the National Library of Poland. The winning project, Kampung Admiralty in Singapore, has integrated public facilities and community space with over 100 apartments for the elderly. The winning prize was supported by Temasek Trust, investment firm Temasek, decarbonisation investments platform GenZero and non-profit conservation organisation Conservation International. 63 teams submitted concepts for the competition, which started in May 2022. Eight teams were shortlisted and provided with seed funding for their projects, as well as mentoring, coaching sessions, action research and dialogues with policymakers.
