Apart from Mediacorp artistes, this year’s award nominations also comprise of artistes who have worked with Mediacorp on a project basis in the last year. The move is part of Mediacorp’s push to recognise the contributions to local television more broadly, and also to evaluate local artistes based on their merit, notwithstanding of their contractual backgrounds.

Each year, a poll of 1,000 people representing a wide demographic of Singapore’s population, conducted independently by an accredited market research company, is used to identify the Top 20 Male and Top 20 Female artistes (aka the Top 40 Most Popular Artistes list). The slate is then wiped clean and the results of the final Top 10 Male and Top 10 Female artistes are based solely on public voting. This year, 50 per cent of the final results will be derived from this pool of 1,000, while the other 50 per cent will come from the telepoll and online voting results. 

Telepoll voting starts from 16 March 2018 and ends on 22 April at 8.30pm. 
Online voting starts from 17 March 2018 at 12pm and ends on 22 April at 8.30pm. 
Star Awards 2018 airs on Apr 22, 7pm, Ch 8, followed by the post-show party at 10.30pm.
