Kreative Diadem - Kreative Diadem Annual Creative Writing Contest Movemeback African initiative cover image


Applications are open for the Kreative Diadem Annual Creative Writing Contest 2020. The contest is Kreative Diadem’s way of celebrating creativity, originality and everything in between. The 2020 edition has two genres: Poetry and Flash fiction.

Poetry: We 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, we only need you to provoke our thoughts.

Flash Fiction: Writers live twice because even when they are no more, their stories live for them. We love wickedly suspenseful fiction with twists here and there. Tell us a unique story, make us believe it’s true and go home with a cash prize.



  • We are reaching out to the next generation of writers and poets. You must be 21 years or younger as of December 2020. Candidates older than this age will be disqualified automatically.


  • Only Nigerian residents are eligible to apply. We are working actively on opening this opportunity to a wider audience but we are currently receiving entries from Nigeria alone.
