Caine Prize

The Caine Prize for African Writing is a literature prize awarded to an African writer of a short story published in English. The prize was launched in 1999 to encourage and highlight the richness and diversity of African writing by bringing it to a wider audience internationally. The focus on the short story reflects the contemporary development of the African story-telling tradition.
