'OTHERS' IS NOT A RACE
by Melissa De Silva
winner of the Creative Nonfiction category


What is a Eurasian? Are Eurasians Singaporean? What does it mean to be a Eurasian living in Singapore? Others is Not a Race is a tapestry that weaves together the multiple genres of narrative fiction, creative nonfiction, literary food writing and family memoir, to offer insight into the micro-minority Eurasian community through the intensely personal lens of the writer's own experience living and growing up as a Eurasian in Singapore. Throughout are interwoven the themes of memory, loss, language, identity and cultural reclamation.

Similarly, it is a reflective and provocative journey of self-discovery; a journey the reader may also take to explore what it means to exist at the confluence of being Singaporean and being Eurasian, and to interrogate the liminal space between two cultures, Asian and European, occupied by this community

A FIELD GUIDES TO SUPERMARKETS IN SINGAPORE
by Samuel Lee
winner of the Poetry category


A Field Guide to Supermarkets in Singapore 
is a 19th century reference book (on philology? art history? anthropology? nobody remembers) that fell into a tropical swamp and was rescued, then lovingly restored, by a nice lady in curlers.1

Caked in organic matter too dense to scrub off, the pages of Samuel Lee's debut collection reveal visions and premonitions of a city filled with characters engaged in their own private sorrows, both minute and expansive. To read him is to be lost in the aisles of millennia.
