About the Prize

The 9mobile Prize for Literature celebrates new writers of African citizenship whose first fiction book (over 30,000 words) was published in the last twenty four (24) months. For the purposes of this definition, first book means first printed production in book form.

Authors and their publishers can be based anywhere in the world. The winner of the 9mobile Prize for Literature receives £15,000, and a high end device. In line with our vision of promoting upcoming writers, 9mobile will sponsor a book tour to three African cities. The winning writer will also embark on the 9mobile Fellowship at the University of East Anglia mentored by Professor Giles Foden (author of The Last King of Scotland) which will include significant opportunities to meet other writers, publishers and most importantly work on their second book. The 9mobile Prize for Literature is unique in that it also aims to promote the publishing industry at large and will therefore purchase 1000 copies of all shortlisted books which will be donated to various schools, book clubs and libraries across the African continent.
