 Kina Supports Crocodile Prize Competition

 Kina Securities Limited today presented a cheque of K2,000 to Crocodile Prize Organisation’s 2017 Competition in Port Moresby.

Mr Emmanuel Peni, Crocodile Prize Organisation’s Chairman, when receiving the cheque, thanked Kina and said the money will go towards the Poetry category of the competition.

“Since the inception of the competition, we have received many great writings from writers from all over the country,” said Mr Peni. “To write, one must be inspired by the environment and events around them and when the writer from these inspirations, it inspires others to something.”

The competition categories are poetry; short stories; heritage writing; writing for children; essays and journalism; women in writing; and emerging young writer.

“Kina is pleased to support the competition because Papua New Guinea’s rich culture and tradition is slowly dying and if not captured through literature will be lost forever,” said Syd Yates, Kina’s Chief Executive Officer.

Mr Yates when presenting the cheque, acknowledged Mr Peni and Crocodile Prize volunteers and said: “At Kina we put our community at the centre of everything we do, our community is important to us and initiative such as the competition is contributing meaningfully to the sustainable development and social well being of our communities.”

The Crocodile Prize Writers Competition is named after the first novel written by Sir Vincent Eri published in 1970 and is Papua New Guinea’s only National Literacy Competition.
