Singapore bank announces storytellers grant of a SGD 150,000 to be awarded to three winning storytellers

POSB, which calls itself Singapore’s neighbourhood bank, has announced the POSB Storytellers Grant, a SGD 150,000 initiative to fund the creation of works from aspiring storytellers that provide contemporary and refreshed perspectives on Singapore’s ‘new neighbourhoods’.

These storytellers could be anyone, from photographers to writers, artists to videographers, or simply just the man-on-the-street with a unique tale, said POSB Bank in a statement on 24 April. The grant of SGD150,000 will be awarded to three winners to produce a story about the new neighbourhood and share it with the community.

The initiative has been launched as part of the bank’s SG50 initiative NeighboursFirst.

The grant aims to uncover and share compelling stories that redefine the way Singaporeans see our neighbourhoods and communities today, the bank said in its statement.
