To inspire up-and-coming and motivate self-published authors, we need to appreciate their role in shaping an Africa with a Strong Cultural Identity, Common Heritage, Values and Ethics through Cultural Heritage, Creative Arts and Businesses.
The resources are not enough, but your support, no matter how little, will go a long way in supporting the up-and-coming writers. We target to pay the Prize winner USD100,000. (The 2023 cash Prize [provided by the Publisher] is Ksh.30,000. However, we aim to award the winner Ksh.300,000 and the balance we use to print 1000 copies of the winning book and 200 copies each of the first and second runner-ups to distribute to community schools and libraries across Kenya.)
Thus, we cordially invite corporates, institutions, foundations, and individuals to sponsor the initiative to help redefine our stories and recognise excellent, quality writing to both budding and experienced writers.
