We’re delighted to be working with AKO Caine Prize on a documentary film that celebrates the history of the prize and its place in the contemporary landscape of African Literature. The film will be a centrepiece in announcing the 2020 Prize winner.
The AKO 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 2000 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.
