The top 10 finalists will each receive $15,000 worth of prizes including free media coverage from Vogue Singapore, as well as first-hand feedback from industry leaders and introductions to potential investors for funding.

As the eSports industry continues to grow in popularity, more and more companies are setting up teams dedicated to building and managing their own eSports tournaments. These teams compete in online gaming competitions, often against other gaming companies and gamers from around the world. In the United States alone, eSports tournaments generated more than $2.4 billion in revenue last year, and the industry is expected to reach $3.8 trillion by 2025.

In a bid to support the growth of this sector, the Singapore government recently established a special fund that is designed to reward and encourage innovation in the field. The new Fund for Research and Development of eSports will offer grants of up to $500,000 to organisations that demonstrate excellence in the research and development of eSports technologies.

This is in line with the Singapore government’s objective to be one of the top five eSports markets worldwide by 2025, and to create a vibrant and dynamic gaming ecosystem. In addition, the government has a set of guidelines that all eSports operators must follow to ensure the industry remains healthy and sustainable.

The winners of the 2023 P*DA Design of the Year have been chosen, with the six projects receiving recognition for their groundbreaking designs that make a substantial impact on Singapore’s economy and quality of life. Among them is CapitaSpring by Bjarke Ingels Group and Carlo Ratti Associati, a green skyscraper that combines office space with retail and recreation, and serves as an example of how future cities can be powered by the sun.

The full list of winners can be found on the P*DA website. The shortlisted entries were judged by a panel of experts, which included academics Khoo Gaik Cheng and Lucky Kuswandi, filmmakers Le Lam Vien and Bopha Oul, and film critic Tuan Andrew Nguyen. Winners will be presented with their prizes at a ceremony in November. The winner of the Best Southeast Asian Short Film will be awarded a cash prize worth SGD5,000 from Filmgarde Cineplexes, as well as an online, audio post and DCP package, and audio final mix and DCP feature worth SGD10,000 from Mocha Chai Laboratories. The runner-up will win a production services package worth SGD15,000 from Shooting Gallery Asia.
