Overview of this campaign

  • Present the candidates in an informal setting, where it is clear that they have no prior knowledge of the questions and have not had rehearsal time.
  • Engage younger Singaporeans on the social platforms they engage with most.
  • Feature six questions from young Singaporeans on a broad range of topics including approaches to mental health and tackling corruption.
  • Create a format that can work as one full vibrant show with the dynamism younger audiences expect, and can be split into digestible vertical formats for social media.
