Papua New Guinea website listing - Crocodile Prize

Web: http://www.crocodileprize.org

Literary Awards of Papua New Guinea. The Crocodile Prize evolved from a discussion between Phil Fitzpatrick and Keith Jackson, both of whom had worked in Papua New Guinea, in the context of the PNG Attitude website, which has a policy of encouraging and publishing Papua New Guinean contributors. The concept of a national literary competition was triggered by Fitzpatrick’s concern that creative writing in Papua New Guinea had fallen upon hard times, and that this was a cultural constraint that needed to be addressed.
