Dear Members and Friends

When we first launched our awards in 2015, as part of celebrating SG50, many people thought we were unwise to attempt an annual awards programme. They were right in the sense it is tough to do – just like many things which are right are tough to do. Shining a spotlight on the power of collaboration to enable innovation and the creation of new value for the collaborating businesses is the right thing to do. Our award winners show what is possible for every business to achieve positive outcomes.

Thanks to all your support, our awards are now in their 8th consecutive year. It is with much pleasure we officially launch the 2023 SICC Awards today: nominations are now open!

The SICC Awards are differentiated in many ways from other award programmes:-

·    The awards are open to everyone whether you are a member of SICC or not.

·    The awards are international: all successful collaborations can apply as long as one of the collaborating businesses is based in Singapore.

·    No-one sponsors or influences the decisions to make, or not to make, awards. Awards are made solely on the collective opinions of an independent panel of judges.

·    Finalists and other members sponsor the gala dinner at which the winners are announced and awarded by buying at least 1 table.

·    The SICC Awards share the key learnings from the award winning collaborations in an annual TV programme produced for the Chamber by Channel NewsAsia (CNA) and paid for by the Chamber not by the awards finalists. We do this to share the power of collaboration with as wide an audience as possible to encourage more people to see how collaboration can help them innovate, grow, sustain and excel. Tune in to CNA on 23 March at 7.00pm for “Collaborate to Innovate: Growing Your Ecosystem” to learn from the winners of last year’s awards.

This year, in addition to the existing 4 award categories, we are launching a 5th category for the Most Positive Workplace Collaboration. Work is a collaboration between employers and employees. There is nothing more important in business today than each business getting workplace culture right to attract and retain talent and customers, to implement business plans and to achieve sustained, commercial success. Many businesses shy away from discussing this important aspect of commercial life and, yet, it is central to and for their very survival. Like an annual awards programme, it takes effort to achieve optimal workplace culture but it is the right thing to do for everyone in a business and for the community in which the business is based.

To participate in this year’s awards, visit for the Awards Information Pack which gives details of each awards category, the judging panel and details on sponsorship opportunities for the gala dinner. Nomination forms are also available on the same site.

The Awards Ceremony & Gala will be held on 26 October 2023 at Marina Bay Sands in the presence of our Guest-of-Honour Mr. Alvin Tan, Minister of State, Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth & Ministry of Trade and Industry.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and wish everyone all the very best.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
