12 YEAR OLD SIOW LEE XIAN CREATES HISTORY IN 2010 UOB PAINTING OF THE YEAR COMPETITION

On 10th July 2010, one of Art Boot Camp's very own students,12-year old Ms Siow Lee Xian, re-wrote the history books when she became the youngest individual in history to be awarded the $10,000 PLATINUM AWARD in the 29th UNITED OVERSEAS BANK (UOB) PAINTING-OF-THE-YEAR (POY) COMPETITION 2010.

The competition is arguably Singapore's most prestigious one, which has served as a platform to recognize the best creative talents in the nation since 1982. Since its inception, the competition has nurtured many local artists, a number of whom have made a name for themselves on the international stage. The PLATINUM AWARD is also the highest honour possible to be attained by a 12-year old, as it pits contestants across all the age groups in the country, irrespective of age (adults included), against one another. The only award higher is the overall PAINTING-OF-THE-YEAR award, which includes a $30,000 cash prize, of which contestants in Ms Siow’s age group (Junior Category: 7 to 12 year olds) are not eligible to be considered for. By comparison, the Most Promising Young Artist of the Year award for the Junior Category won a $2,000 prize. To put things in perspective, little Ms Siow basically bagged the top prize any child could ever possibly dream of!
