THE THEME FOR N.E.MATION!12 IS: TOGETHER WE KEEP SINGAPORE STRONG

Total defence remains our best defence and all-round response to threats and challenges that confront Singapore on all fronts – military, civil, economic, social and psychological. The evolving threats we face, including hybrid warfare, terrorism, cyber-attacks, pandemics, require all Singaporeans to continue playing our part to protect Singapore and our shared way of life. As long as we remain united and resilient, we will be able to overcome any challenges.

This year's edition also had a new Youth Crowdsource Category that allowed members of the public - aged 17 to 35 - to submit story ideas based on the theme. Students from Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) and Institute of Technical Education College Central then turned the best 10 ideas into animation clips.

The winner for this category, Team Nacho Cheese from NYP, showcased the trials Singapore has gone through in their clip String Of Singapore. SIDM Animation year 2 students listed won the top three prizes for NEmation12 Youth Crowdsource Category.
