A singapore prize is an award given to someone who has done well in a certain field. The person who wins the prize will receive a sum of money and possibly a trophy to commemorate their win. These prizes are often given by government agencies and can be very large. They can also be for a variety of fields, from science to art.

The NUS Singapore History Prize was created to honour works that explore the city-state’s past and engage with its readers. It is open to both fiction and non-fiction titles and will be judged by a panel of experts, including literary luminaries Balli Kaur Jaswal and Yong Shu Hoong. The panel will also look for a work that “resonates with Singapore and its readers”.

Besides the main awards, there are many other categories that people can win in this event. For example, there is a category for best short film and one for best screenplay. There are also a number of awards that are dedicated to the memory of certain individuals. There is also a category for children’s books.
