Etisalat Nigeria has announced an extension in the closing date for the receipt of entries for the 2014 Flash Fiction Prize category of the Etisalat Prize for literature.
The new closing date is now November 11, 2014.
The mobile telecoms operator had earlier announced November 4 as the closing date, but cited “large number of entries” as the reason for the extension.
According to Etisalat, this award category which is in line with the company’s goal of inspiring and encouraging creativity is designed to celebrate the short form of storytelling. The winning author goes away with a cash prize of £1,000, a high-end device, with his or her published e-book promoted online and via digital media platforms.
Entries can be submitted via the Etisalat’s website.
