The President’s Young Talents is Singapore’s premier and only mentoring, commissioning, and award programme, which recognises promising artists aged 35 and below, whose practices chart new dimensions in Singapore contemporary art. Previous PYT artists include Boo Junfeng, Heman Chong, Charles Lim, Donna Ong, Tan Pin Pin and Vertical Submarine, to name a few, all of whom have gone on to develop outstanding work in and beyond Singapore.

Inaugurated by the Singapore Art Museum in 2001 to promote critically engaged practices through discourse and experimentation, the 2018 edition of the President’s Young Talents seeks to afford greater artistic and curatorial growth for the artists involved and curator-mentors respectively. Invited curator-mentors, ranging from past participating artists to independent curators, will form a curatorial committee to shortlist artists for this edition. An independent jury – which will include members from SAM – will be convened to award the President’s Young Talents prize.

People's Choice Award

Singapore Art Museum invites the public to vote for their favourite artwork from 4 October to 25 November 2018 at the lobby of SAM at 8Q. The artist whose artwork receives the most votes is conferred the People's Choice Award, as well as a cash prize of $5,000. The President's Young Talents' People's Choice Award will be announced on 29 November 2018.
