Call for entries ~ Sarraounia Prize for Young Adult Fiction

The quest to contribute to the availability of reading material for young African adults, promote literature, and broaden the intellectual horizon of African youth birthed the Sarraounia Prize for Young Adult Fiction.

The Centre for Arts and Culture of Abdou Moumouni University in Niger and Amalion Publishing house in Senegal jointly call for entries for the 2020 edition of the Sarraounia Prize.

Every two years, the Sarraounia Prize is awarded to the best unpublished fiction for young adults written in English, French or Hausa by African authors and illustrators based in Africa.

For the 2020 edition, the winner will receive a prize of 1,000 euros, and the winning entry will be published and disseminated by Amalion and its partners from May 2020.

The Sarraounia Prize will explore all traditional and digital media technologies to disseminate its activities and will endeavour to promote the writer and their work in various forums, in order to bring their work to the attention of book industry actors and the general public.
