A good thought Angra Sil. Surely institutions have a role to play.

But maybe ownership, participation and management by writers like ourselves is an important objective and the real key to keeping the Crocodile Prize alive and biting.

Institutionalising it may remove the responsibility from the hands of the grassroots writers.

Lacking responsibility and not taking ownership is bad enough in PNG as it is;

I would rather the Crocodile Prize live and die by the hands that hold the quill than those that merely hold the scroll.

Angra, in the long run I tend to think that Institute of PNG Studies or some other government entities should cradle the Crocodile Prize and fund it yearly but outsourced to Keith Jacksons and Friends' PNG Attitude blog to run it. That could withstand the test of time.
