Crocodile Prize: 2014 essay & journalism sponsor announced


Sponsors 131129THE PNG CHAMBER OF MINES & PETROLEUM has again thrown its substantial support behind The Crocodile Prize after it today renewed its sponsorship of the Essay & Journalism Award for 2014.

There have already been more than 40 entries to this award even though the closing date is not until 30 June next year.

The Chamber is the peak industry body of the resources industry and has about 200 members covering most of the mining and petroleum companies active in PNG.

It is the representative body of the industry and has an educational as well as an advocacy role. You can visit its website here.

The Chamber joins Steamships which is again sponsoring the Short Story Award, Ok Tedi Mining (Book of the Year), Kina Securities (Poetry) and the Cleland Family (Heritage).

Meanwhile negotiations continue with other organisations as the Crocodile Prize Organising Group (COG) seeks further award sponsors as well as backers for its publishing program under which, for the fourth year in a row, the Crocodile Prize Anthology of the best PNG writing will be produced. COG has already received commitments of over $12,000 for its 2014 publishing program and is confident of reaching its target of $20,000.

The Crocodile Prize Anthology 2013 is available from Amazon here for $9 + postage (paperback) and $5 (Kindle e-book).
