The annual UOB POY competition is the Bank’s flagship art programme. It was established in 1982 and is Singapore’s longest-running and one of Southeast Asia’s most prestigious annual art awards. The UOB POY competition underscores the Bank’s commitment to uncover the next generation of great Southeast Asian artists.
UOB POY submissions will open from 16 to 18 August 2019 at the Artspace@Helutrans. The competition is open to all Singapore citizens and permanent residents.
The Singapore winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in November, together with the winner of the UOB Southeast Asian Painting of the Year. This prestigious award will go to the country winner with the most outstanding work in the region.
In addition, the UOB POY country winners in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand will be considered for a month-long residency programme at the renowned Fukuoka Asian Art Museum in Japan.
