THIS brief article is for all Papua New Guinean writers intending to enter the 2016 Crocodile Prize.
If you want to take part in the Crocodile Prize this year, you have to visit this blog and read as much information as you can.
When you decide to enter one of the seven Crocodile Prize 2016 categories, you must label your writing clearly so the entry does not get lost or mixed up with other people’s entries.
Most of the entries the committee has received so far do not include the writer’s name even on the entry itself. Having your name written on the email does not get it on your entry.
Some entries also do not have categories they are being entered into.
To assist future submissions, please follow the instructions below carefully and follow the example I have provided.
The most important thing to do is to write your title, your full name and category next to that title on the actual entry.
You must also attach a copy of the entry form with your full details. The entry forms are on the two websites: www.crocodile prize.com. The entry form can be downloaded or copied and pasted.
Here is an example of how you should submit an entry.
Poetry Entry Crocodile Prize – by Joycelin Leahy©
A mess of feelings
Soft strings twisted, and tangled
A lore to be unfold soon
Waiting, yearning the unknown
