The event also saw the awarding of FuturArc Prize (FAP) 2022, a student competition with the prompt of Reinterpretation.

The competition ran from 22 November 2021 to 11 March 2022, with judging held in April.

Benjamin Chong Mun Choen, a recent Master’s graduate from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), was one of eight Merit recipients in this competition. Being an individual entrant, Chong is also the only awardee from Singapore for the 2022 cycle.
