The Etisalat Prize for Literature is the first ever Pan African prize celebrating debut African writers of published fiction. It is designed to recognize and reward debut fiction writers of African citizenship.
The platform was launched in 2013 to bridge the growing gap between talented writers and the world at large by giving first time African writers a platform where their writing prowess can be presented to the world thus acting as a spring board for them in their budding writing careers.
The call to entry for the 2015 Etisalat Prize for Literature which is in its third year was announced on the 18th of June 2015 and will close on the 27th of August 2015. This year, our Judges will certainly be looking out for creativity – an expression of innovation, which is key to the success of the Etisalat brand.
The winner this year will receive a cash prize of £15,000 and also receive a Fellowship at the University of East Anglia as well as an engraved Montblanc Meisterstück pen, a high end device and book tours in three countries.
