The prize money in the PNG annual literary competition, The Crocodile Prize will remain at K5000 for one winner. The Chairman Emmanuel Peni said it was better to keep the prize at K5000 (Australian – $2000 today’s exchange rate) as the previous five years.
There has been a slight delay in winners’ announcement because of the confusion with the prize money.
Although the committee had discussed three prizes from first to third, 2016 prize total remains the same. This was the amount already publicised in PNG media. There will not be three winners per category as in the previous post. Any inquiries about this can be sent to The Chairman on email@example.com
