The Nigeria Prize for Literature 2019 is available for application. Nigeria LNG Limited invites entries for The Nigeria Prize for Literature. Nigeria LNG (NLNG) Limited is endowing this yearly literature prize to honour the author of the best book by a Nigerian within the last four years. The prize rotates among four literary genres- prose fiction, poetry, drama and children’s literature. This year, the competition is for Children’s Literature. Furthermore, the competition is open to only Nigerian writers irrespective of their place of residence. With The Nigeria Prize for Literature, it is expected that the quest for a prestigious prize will improve the quality of writing, editing, proof-reading, and publishing in the country with far-reaching positive effect on print as well as broadcast journalism.


The prize carries a reward of one hundred thousand US dollars ($100,000.00).
