NIGERIAN STUDENTS POETRY PRIZE 2017

 

Entries are officially open for the second edition of the Nigerian Students Poetry Prize. All entrants stand a chance to win 100,000 naira, 60,000 naira and 40,000 naira for the first, second and third positions respectively.

Established in 2016, the prize’s main objective is to stimulate the creativity and intellectual life of Nigerian students. It is organized by Poets in Nigeria (PIN), a platform which aims to promote Nigerian poetry. The maiden edition was won by Noah Oladele, an Obafemi Awolowo University student. It culminated in an anthology of the top 100 submissions, published on Amazon and Okada Books.

Only unpublished poems by Nigerian undergraduates are eligible for submission. There is no thematic or word-count limit to the poems.

Open to Nigerian undergraduates irrespective of location.

Entries submitted must be previously unpublished. A submission discovered to have defaulted on this rule will be automatically voided (inclusive of winners).

Entries are to be submitted through this form. For further information, visit PIN’s website.

Deadline is APRIL 15.

[Please NoteBrittle Paper is not responsible for the organization or further promotion of this call for submission, neither do we have a stake in its popularity. Address any inquiry to poetsinnigeria@gmail.com. Thank you.]
