FAQ for AWARE Awards and Alamak! Award nominations



Created in 2011 to mark AWARE’s 26th anniversary, the AWARE Awards celebrate women, men and/or organisations who have broken through gender barriers and helped to nurture a culture of gender equality in Singapore.

The winners of the AWARE Awards are chosen by a panel of judges.


The Alamak! Award was created to highlight instances of sexism in Singapore. Nominees can be individuals, as well as ads, corporate or public policies and acts that are anti-gender equality. The winner is selected via online voting.


Nominees for both the AWARE Awards and the Alamak! Award are submitted by members of the public as well as AWARE members.

Nominations are now open for 2013. Simply fill out the nomination form here.
