THE IDIOS PRIZE FOR FLASH FICTION AND POETRY 2018.
In April, 2018, Idios creatives sought out Children of Nigerian schools who had hidden talents in Writing. They were required to submit creative poems and Stories in the IDIOS PRIZE FOR FLASH FICTION AND POETRY.
Three hundred and ninety seven children participated and after proper scrutiny, 100 Nigerian Children were selected. Their short stories and poems were compiled and published in a book titled “THE FUTURE, A COLLECTION OF SHORT STORIES AND POEMSat no cost to the parents and children.
A book presentation was held to that effect in November, 2018 at NAF conference center, Abuja which was well attended by over nine hundred parents, young people and the new authors.
The 100 young authors were also presented with certificates inducting them into the idios family.
A Book signing and exhibition immediately followed where the young authors were opportune to sign and sell autographed copies to the attendees.
Idios creatives single handedly produced 100 young Nigerian authors with over 20 schools involved.
Idios Creatives received loads of appraisals and commendations for this feat.
