The African Christian Authors Book Awards are set to be hosted for the first time in Nairobi, Kenya.
The African Christian Authors Book Award program is set to recognise and promotes quality in Christian authorship in East Africa. Presented annually to Christian authors, the Award program celebrates the “best of the year” in 10 categories. Five finalists are chosen in each category unless there is a tie. The Winner in each category is announced and awarded at African Christian Authors Gala held at CLC Kenya’s Family Reading Picnic each year.
In addition, the following titles are chosen:
- African Christian Authors Content of the Year to represent the year’s best book for its literary merit
- African Christian Authors Book Cover of the Year to represent the year’s best book cover for its design merit
- African Christian Authors Book Program of the Year to represent the year’s best book for its extraordinary impact.
The new award is organized by CLC International which has been “making literature available to all nations so that people may come to faith and maturity in our Lord Jesus Christ.” In Kenya, CLC started in 2007 and has been impacting lives through Christian literature and publishing in East Africa. CLC Kenya celebrates and seeks to promote great books that impact the world by encouraging Christian authorship in East Africa.
The award is open to submissions until August 30, 2021. For more information on how to enter please click here.
