2011 CAINE PRIZE JUDGES ANNOUNCED

16/03/2011

Last  year the Caine Prize, described as Africa’s leading literary award, was won by Sierra Leonean writer Olufemi Terry. Chair of judges Fiammetta Rocco said at the time “ambitious, brave and hugely imaginative, Olufemi Terry’s ‘Stickfighting Days’ presents a heroic culture that is Homeric in its scale and conception. The execution of this story is so tight and the presentation so cinematic, it confirms Olufemi Terry as a talent with an enormous future.”

Caine Prize key dates:

  • Shortlist Announcement: May 2011
  • Caine Prize Shortlist Readings at the Southbank centre: 10 July 2011
  • Awards Ceremony: 11 July 2011
