Etisalat has at the core of its vision, to encourage
and inspire creativity. Having this in mind, the Flash Fiction Award has
been established in order to cater to the large amount of interest
received from unpublished writers across the Continent.  In order to
garner some publicity for the art of flash fiction writing and the
writers themselves, this category of the Prize will be open to the
general public to review and contribute to the ultimately selection of a
winner.
In today’s fast paced world where
communication is right at our finger tips through the use of smart
devices; phones, tablets and the likes, consumers prefer to consume
information on-the-go and in bite sized chunks. The Flash Fiction Award
therefore seeks to marry both of these concepts together thus providing
added value to mobile device users across Africa.

How to enter
  • The Prize is open to all writers of unpublished short stories (of African citizenship but can be resident anywhere in the world)
  • All entries will be submitted online via the website and short stories submitted should not exceed 300 words
