The winners of the Singapore prize are chosen by a panel of judges, including representatives from government agencies and industry associations. The prize is a recognition of the hard work and dedication that each winner has put into their work. The winners also receive funding to help them implement their projects. In addition, they are given the opportunity to meet with potential investors and business partners. They are also encouraged to continue developing their projects, and are eligible for a second award if they wish to do so.
The Singapore Prize is a competition that rewards innovative projects that tackle global challenges and solve pressing issues. The winners are rewarded with a cash prize of up to $2.3 million.

The winners have included a migrant worker who created a social enterprise that allows workers to use their earnings to buy food and goods, and an organisation which teaches the homeless to repair cars and bicycles.
