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 for entries for the 2016 Etisalat Prize for Literature which is in its fourth year was announced on June 1, 2016 and will close on August 31, 2016. 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.
