13-19 Art Prize

13-19 Art Prize

Launched in 2021, the 13-19 Art Prize is an annual art competition which seeks to recognise and celebrate young art talents in Singapore, while also imparting values of giving-back to the community to support their peers from disadvantaged backgrounds through the arts.

Open to young talents aged 13 to 19 years old, the 13-19 Art Prize seeks to inspire the next generation of artists to take their creative potential to new heights and promote a diversity of artistic expressions.

As a fundraiser, all winning works from the 13-19 Art Prize (both canvas and digital) are exhibited and auctioned to raise funds for The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF). Adopted by The Business Times in 2005, BT BAF has reached out to over 20,000 children and youth from financially disadvantaged backgrounds, empowering them to pursue their dreams and fulfil their potential in the arts. The fund provides structured arts training programmes at two arts training centres managed by TRCL, The Little Arts Academy and 10 Square Youth.

The competition this year attracted 97 submissions in the Canvas artwork category, and 152 in the Digital artwork category, with over 20 entries coming from around the region.

With that, congratulations to the 20 canvas and digital artwork prize-winners! You can view the winning works here.
