It’s called simply Crocodile Prize 2014 and it contains all the articles, stories and poems written by Papua New Guineans and published in PNG Attitude since last Independence Day, 16 September, when Crocodile Prize 2013 officially came to an end.
If you, the author approve, all your work published in PNG Attitude since then will be eligible for entry to PNG’s national writing contest. Automatically. It’s that easy.
But there’s a proviso. An entry form needs to be completed. One entry form covers all entries, but we do need it. Why don't you download this entry form now.
Although September 2014 is still far away, it’s not too soon to be crafting and refining that story, poem or essay that may see you crowned next year as one of the great Papua New Guinean writers and winning prize money of K5,000.
And it’s certainly not too soon for us here at PNG Attitude to be enlisting sponsors for the awards.
Early sponsorship deals have been concluded for both the Ok Tedi Mining Book of the Year Award and the Cleland Family Heritage Writing Award.
Discussions continue with a number of other organisations about their participation in one of PNG's most important national events.
