Noise Singapore announced the winners for the 2014 Noise Singapore Award today at the Noise Wrap Party at Switch. From local band Take Two to chemist turned artist Moses Lim, a total of six local artists and musicians were lauded for the good work and performances they have displayed during the last 5 months, showcasing their passion in art, design, photography and music.
For each of the young artists, the Noise TAP and TMM programmes have been a great journey, having to balance their personal commitments while working to sharpen their craft. The Noise Singapore Award is given to the most promising young artists from The Apprenticeship Programme (TAP) and The Music Mentorship (TMM) programmes. Each of the artists spent 4-5 months with industry professionals like local artist and filmmaker Liao Jiekai, seasoned photojournalist Bryan Van Der Beek and Saiful Idris frontman of The Great Spy Experiment, to learn about the scene and pick up tricks and skills to help them shine.
In recognition of the potential that the aspiring young artists possess, the winners are awarded an arts grant of SGD 5,000 for them to take the next step in their artistic journeys.
