The Prestigious 30th UOB Painting Of The Year POY 2011

UOB’s new logo comprises the iconic red five-barred logo mark and the abbreviated name “UOB” in a modern and simple logo type.

Derived from the traditional Chinese ‘five-barred gate’ system of counting in fives, the logo mark symbolises security and unity.
It is a distinctive visual which our customers and partners have grown to recognise.
The simplicity of the logo type reflects the Bank’s focus and clarity.

UOB has been supporting the arts since the early 1970s. The Bank believes that an
awareness and appreciation of the Arts can inject vibrancy and contribute to the uplifting
of a society. Chief among its efforts is the UOB POY Competition which has become a
significant event in the arts calendar in Singapore.
Through the UOB POY Competition, UOB aims to promote a greater interest in local art,
further encourage artists in their creative endeavours and provide a platform to
recognise and exhibit the best creative works.
The UOB POY Competition was launched in 1982 in Singapore and has been held
annually since. 2011 marks the 30th anniversary of this premiere art event in Singapore,
while UOB Thai held the UOB POY Competition for the first time in 2010.
In conjunction with the expansion into the region, UOB has reaffirmed the original intent
of the UOB POY Competition by refocusing on paintings as an art form. This year, the
UOB POY Competition will not include a photography category. The minimum age of
participation has also increased to 13 to streamline the selection process and
concentrate the efforts on more mature works.
Said Mr Choo Thiam Siew, Chief Judge for this year’s POY Competition Judging Panel,
“The UOB POY Competition has been an institution in the Singapore arts scene for 30
years. Painting is a diverse and sophisticated art form and allows an artist to be able to
express the range of his ideas and talents. By concentrating solely on painting, UOB is
returning to the essence of the POY Competition, in keeping with what the name

Mr Wee Ee Cheong, UOB’s Deputy Chairman and Group Chief Executive Officer said,
“As we hit the 30-year milestone for the UOB POY Competition, we remain committed to
our support for the Arts, which we believe play a vital role in society. We are pleased to
extend the UOB POY Competition beyond Singapore to the regional communities where
we operate, starting with Thailand and now Malaysia and Indonesia. We aim to broaden
the avenues for local artists to compete on a regional platform, and facilitate crosscultural

  the 2 winners at UOB Painting of the Year competition 2010

SINGAPORE: This year's UOB Painting of the Year competition saw two winners. That's because the event, its 29th year, was extended to Thailand.

The painting titled "Open New Sky" was the winner from Thailand.

21-year-old artist Pannaphan Yotmani from the renowned Silpakorn University, beat 120 others for the honour.

She won for herself a cash prize of 100,000 baht or S$4,289.35.

18-year-old Bai TianYuan won the Singapore competition with this entry titled "What".

The Raffles Junior College student beat 660 others for the S$30,000 cash prize.

The winning entries, along with 15 others, are on display at the Esplanade till July 25 2010.

TianYuan's piece is a self-portrait with a frustrated expression, resulting from the sense of loss and confusion when an artist has a mental block.

But she said frustration does not hinder the art.

She said: "The frustration and the struggle that you may face during the decision-making, the art making process is actually very essential to create good artworks. And I think the passion for it is really able to sustain you to continue doing art." - CNA/vm
