Golden Baobab has been running three literature prizes for six consecutive years. These prizes invite entries of unpublished stories for children written by African citizens irrespective of age, race, or country of origin. This year, it introduced two new prizes for illustrations. This is to discover, nurture and celebrate talent, passion and contribution to the African children’s literature space. Entrants will submit illustrations as per Golden Baobab specifications. The rules and regulations for the Illustration prizes have been translated to French, Portuguese and Arabic.
