Etisalat Prize For Literature 2015 Application Is Ongoing

wigo NG ...618 days ago
The Etisalat Prize for Literature is the first ever pan-African prize
celebrating first time writers of published fiction books. The Prize aims
to serve as a platform for the discovery of new creative talent out of the
continent and invariably promote the burgeoning publishing industry in
Africa.
By recognizing and celebrating writers and other members of the literary
community across Africa, Etisalat plans to bring some much needed
awareness and acclaim to the art of Fiction writing while also
applauding and rewarding the efforts of those who have ventured into
this genre in recent times.
At the core of Etisalat’s vision is promoting passion, nurturing talent and
providing a platform for communicating ideas, The ‘Etisalat Prize for
Literature’ wholly embodies this vision, bringing together celebrated high
profile writers, book critics and academics from across the Continent
and beyond in order to give credence and honor to ‘home-grown’ talent
while also rewarding new entrants and encouraging further participation
in this area.
Prize Structure
The Etisalat Prize for Literature celebrates new writers of African
citizenship whose first fiction book (over 30,000 words) was published in
the last twenty four (24) months. For the purposes of this definition, first
book means first printed production in book form of any type or genre.
Authors and their publishers can be based anywhere in the world. An
online Flash Fiction Prize will be launched later in the year driven entirely
by social media – more information on this will be made available on
our website.
The winner of the Etisalat Prize for Literature receives £15,000, a
Samsung Galaxy Note and a Montblanc Meisterstuck. In line with our
vision of promoting upcoming writers, Etisalat will sponsor a book tour
to three African cities.
The winning writer will also embark on the Etisalat Fellowship at the
University of East Anglia mentored by Professor Giles Foden (author of
The Last King of Scotland) which will include significant opportunities to
meet other writers, publishers and most importantly work on their second
book.
Shortlisted writers will win a Samsung Galaxy Note and also go on a
book tour to two major African cities.
The Etisalat Prize for Literature is unique in that it also aims to promote
the publishing industry at large and will therefore purchase 1000 copies
of all shortlisted books which will be donated to various schools, book
clubs and libraries across the African continent.
