Shortlist of Etisalat's Flash Fiction Prize out

Post  Admin on Fri Nov 22, 2013 3:10 pm

Telecommunications services provider, Etisalat, Nigeria has unveiled the 20 finalists for the social media-driven Flash Fiction Prize built into the Etisalat Prize for Literature, slated for presentation in January 2014.

Director of Brands & Communication at Etisalat Nigeria, Enitan Denloye, says Flash Fiction is important in the Etisalat Prize for Literature and in literary circles because "it represents the short form of storytelling, a common stepping stone for accomplished writers. Short stories are where a lot of writers discover and perfect their talent especially in the social media-driven world today of digital communication where content is absorbed in 140 characters or less."

According a statement from the organisers, in pursuit of its vision of encouraging and inspiring creativity, Etisalat called for entries for the Flash Fiction Category in the Etisalat Prize for Literature.

The Flash Fiction category is designed to celebrate the short form of storytelling for the upcoming writer. Three prizes will be awarded to the top three writers in this category selected by a high profile judging panel for the Flash Fiction Prize. The winning author will get a cash sum of £1,000,a digital tablet, and will be promoted online and via digital media platforms. The category will also produce two runners up, with each receiving a cash sum of £500 and Samsung Galaxy Note for their literary efforts. The top stories will be compiled into an e-book anthology of flash stories which will be promoted online, Denloye says.
