Kreative Diadem Annual Creative Writing Contest 2019 for Nigerians (Prizes up to N50,000)

Deadline: November 15, 2019

Entries are invited for the Kreative Diadem Annual Creative Writing Contest 2019. The contest is Kreative Diadem’s way of celebrating creativity, originality and everything in between. The 2019 edition has two genres: Poetry and Flash fiction.

  • Poetry: They love the way poems leave a trace of emotions everywhere. They are words that pierce the soul just to drop a message and even leave some eyes misty. It’s not compulsory to write like Shakespeare, they only need you to provoke their thoughts.
  • Flash Fiction: Writers live twice because even when they are no more, their stories do the talking for them. They love wickedly suspenseful fiction with twists here and there. Tell a unique story, make them believe it’s true and go home with a cash prize.


The winners in the Poetry and Flash fiction categories will get the following prizes:

  • 1st Prize – N30,000
  • 2nd Prize – N15,000
  • 3rd Prize – N5,000


  • You must be 21 years or younger as at December 2019. Candidates older than this age will be disqualified automatically;
