The Christian Storyteller Prize, Africa’s premiere Prize for rewarding Christ-centred stories, is now opened up for the 2021 edition.
This year, we are opening up a new category for short Christian films on any topic, available for public viewing and shot between August 26th, 2020 and August 25th, 2021 with a minimum time of 5 and a maximum time of 30 minutes. It should be Christ-Centred, creatively written and professionally told by Christian Nigerian Filmmakers resident in Nigeria, from 18 years of age and above.
The Prize is retaining the original short story category, with the 2021 theme: ‘God’s Rainbow’ and every short story entry must be centred on the theme. The short stories category is between 750 – 1,000 words that are Christ-Centred, creatively written and professionally told by Christian Nigerian writers resident in Nigeria, from 18 years of age and above.
Day by day, cancel culture tries to silence those who do not embrace popular culture over the truth of God’s word. They tell us too choose love without truth.
On the other hand, many have tried to preach truth without love, hating the sinner with the sin, and ignoring the fact all are sinners but for the grace of God who makes those who believe in him righteous.
This year, we are looking out for stories that teach the truth in love, just like Jesus would; Christ-centred stories on God’s idea about the rainbow, gender and sexuality- all three elements that he himself created. Jesus did not shy away from such conversations in his day, and neither must we.
The winners of the 2021 prize would be awarded a combined prize of over $1000.
Submissions will close on the 26th of September.
