ABOUT THE AWARD
The Cultural Medallion was instituted in March 1979 as an initiative of our late President, then Minister of Culture, Mr Ong Teng Cheong, to recognise individuals who have made distinctive contributions in shaping Singapore's cultural landscape. The award recognises individuals who have attained artistic excellence in the fields of literary arts, performing arts, visual arts and film. It is conferred by the President, Republic of Singapore and administered by the National Arts Council.
The Young Artist Award was introduced in 1992 to encourage the development of young artistic talents in Singapore. The award is accorded to young artists aged 35 years and below in the year of award, who have shown promise of artistic excellence in the fields of literary arts, performing arts, visual arts and film.
