The calls for an extension to allow more interested people to access the one-in-a-lifetime opportunity presented by the Prof. MarkAnthony Nze literary prize has been acceded to by the organisers. Interested participants can now hasten up their registrations to take part in the contest which has been put together to give young people an opportunity to show the world the stuff they are made of as far as writing is concerned while also empowering them financially.
Recall that popular social critic, literary guru and media executive, Prof. MarkAnthony Nze had a few months ago instituted a very rare opportunity for young Nigerians who could creatively write their way to prominence. The truth remains that opportunities like this don’t come every day and this underscores why a good number of people have so far shown interest in becoming the first winner of the Literary Prize which is set to become an annual affair.
To become a winner in the contest for the 2022 edition, interested participants are simply expected to write extensively on the topic; ‘RESTRUCTURING: The Best Way Forward For Nigeria’. So are you a writer? Why not pick your pen and notepad and start writing? What you simply need to do is to write 2,500 words of your thoughts on the topic. It is important that participants understand that they must deliver only purely original work as any sort of plagiarism means automatic disqualification.
Anyone who has come across Prof. Nze or his conscious literary postulations or books must have observed one thing – he is an advocate for good governance in Africa and Nigeria where he originally hails from. His message has been about how to rework the leadership conundrum in the country.
Before now, he has written lots of books, journals, articles, and even produced films with expository inclinations which were aimed at exposing the corruption in government circles. This was aimed at sparking the much-needed mindset shift that would see the docile population who are mostly youths to demand good governance, transparency, and accountability from their leaders.
Ahead of the 2023 elections in Nigeria, many young people have relegated an all-important topic like Restrcutring to the back seats and this is the awakening this contest intends to achieve. So why will you want to miss this conversation if you are passionate about changing Nigeria?
The winner of this contest will be smiling home with amazing cash prizes. The cash prize for winners is
₦150,000, ₦100,000, and ₦50,000 for the 1st,2nd, and 3rd positions respectively. So the contest is not just put together for intellectual debates only, No. Many people will be financially rewarded.
Following the extension, the submission of entries has now been extended to terminate on September 30th. The review of candidates’ submissions will commence on the 1st of October and run through to the 30th of November, 2022. The final winners will be announced on the 15th of December, 2022. There will be a lot of side attractions for the winners which would be made public in due course.
If you are interested in participating in this amazing exercise, please quickly get your pen, paper, and writing tabs and start writing. Send your entries to +2349036949021 on WhatsApp. That is the number to reach out to to get all your questions answered too.
