Etisalat Flash Fiction 2016 Shortlist- Top 50( Nairalanders Rep us wella) by Divepen1(m): 10:04am On Dec 05, 2016
On December 3rd the Etisalat Flash Fiction 2016 ended the public voting of entries. The competition was rigorous as people employed various method to scout for votes. However after everything someone must emerge the winner. But before the winner would be announced, Etisalat has promised they would present the shortlist tomorrow, Tuesday, 6th December. I know it could be exciting, I even competed but didn't meet up the number of the lowest 100 which was exactly 100 votes.
However, on this list we have the lowest as high 240 votes. There were some people who didn't get any vote in this competition.

Nice one. Well done. While we wait for the official list to be out, do you have an idea how the judging works from previous years? For Instance is it the person with the most likes who wins? Also how many finalists would be selected?

Thanks for the information.

Thanks. The finalist were not chosen based on content. They just used the public to screen out over 500 entries. Modupe Kuti who won last year's own was firstly surprised to see her name in top 50 and later finalist because her votes weren't as high as expected.
Are you one of the fifty?

Any competition you ask people to vote can be rigged.

I can confidently say many of those who voted did not read the stories.

The flash fiction is okay for starters.

This shows that people are losing interest in the popularity contest that this prize is. Last year, with over a thousand votes, I could not make the Top 50. Now people are making it with a few hundred votes.
