Registration and Deadline

During the entry period that spans from Monday, August 27 to Sunday, October 7, 2018, students are invited to visit www.unionbankng.com/writingchallenge and submit short stories with a word count of between 3,000 and 5,000, to stand a chance of winning great prizes.



Prizes to be Won

The winning entry will receive a cash prize of N500,000 with the second and third best entries winning N200,000 and N100,000 respectively. There will also be a mini award category, including a N50,000 prize for the best designed short story cover as well as an ‘audience favourite’ award and several other consolation prizes.

Best of all, the winning and short-listed works will be forwarded to leading publishing houses in Nigeria for a chance to get published, in a bid to help jumpstart the writing careers of these students and possibly discover the next Chinua Achebe.

The panel of judges for the competition includes Chika Unigwe, author, facilitator of Awake Creative Trust and winner of the 2003 BBC Short Story Competition and Abubakar Ibrahim Adam, creative writer and winner of the 2016 Nigeria Prize for Literature award.

Remember, participants must be undergraduates of any of the Nigerian tertiary institutions as at the entry deadline to be eligible for the competition.

So go ahead and submit that short story for a chance to ‘Rep your school’. Who wins the grand prize? Will it be University of Ilorin or Imo State University or maybe University of Maiduguri?
