The Singapore Book Prize, made possible by a donation from Dr Alan HJ Chan, is awarded to an outstanding publication in English that epitomises and inspires the spirit of Singapore. The prize is open to any book-length work that makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the past and demonstrates the importance of the spirit of Singapore in shaping its society and culture.
Winners will receive a cash prize, a trophy and media coverage in Vogue Singapore, as well as first-hand feedback from global industry leaders and introductions to potential investors for funding. They will also be invited to attend local activations as part of Earthshot Week, which runs from November 6 to 14.
The prize is awarded annually by the NUS Department of History to a Singapore writer for a distinguished work in any field of history. The book should explore a historical theme or issue in Singapore, and be accessible to general readers. Past winners include Seven Hundred Years: A History Of Singapore (2019) by Kwa Chong Guan, Tan Tai Yong, Peter Borschberg and Derek Heng; Sembawang (2020) by Kamaladevi Aravindan; and State Of Emergency (2017) by Jeremy Tiang.
Founded by Prince William and the Duke of Cambridge in 2020, the Earthshot Prize aims to inspire optimism and innovation around the urgent challenges faced by our planet. The inaugural awards saw the couple travel to Singapore to present the first batch of 20 winners. This year, they will be joined by the 2023 finalists to mark the third edition of the prizes.
