    p>The Caine Prize, awarded annually for African creative writing, is named after the late Sir Michael Caine, former Chairman of the Booker Prize management committee. The Prize is awarded for a short story by an African writer published in English (indicative length 3,000 to 10,000 words). An “African writer” is normally taken to mean someone who was born in Africa, or who is a national of an African country, or whose parents are African.

    The Caine Prize 2014 short-listed stories are:

    • Diane Awerbuck (South Africa) “Phosphorescence”

    • Efemia Chela (Ghana/Zambia) “Chicken”

    • Tendai Huchu (Zimbabwe) “The Intervention”

    • Billy Kahora (Kenya) “The Gorilla’s Apprentice”

    • Okwiri Oduor (Kenya) “My Father’s Head”

    Every year, the shortlisted authors will be awarded a £500 prize and published in the annual Caine Prize anthology alongside twelve stories written at the annual workshop held in Africa. The fifteenth winner of the £10,000 Caine Prize will receive their award at a dinner in the Bodleian Library in Oxford on 14 July 2014.

    They will also be given the opportunity to take up a month’s residence at Georgetown University, as a Writer-in-Residence at the Lannan Center for Poetics and Social Practice, and to take part in the Open Book Festival in Cape Town in September. This is a co-publishing arrangement between the Caine Prize and New Internationalist, Bookworld in Zambia, Cassava Republic in Nigeria, FEMRITE in Uganda, Jacana Media in South Africa, amaBooks in Zimbabwe, Kwani in Kenya and Sub-Saharan Publishers in Ghana.

    Judging Panel and Shortlist: The judging panel is chaired by award-winning author Jackie Kay MBE. She is joined by the distinguished novelist and playwright Gillian Slovo, Zimbabwean journalist Percy Zvomuya, Assistant Professor of English at the University of Georgetown Dr Nicole Rizzuto and the winner of the Caine Prize in 2001 Helon Habila. This is the second time that a past winner of the £10,000 Caine Prize will take part in the judging.
