Prudence originates from Nigeria and has lived for five years in Austria.
In a Kingdom somewhere in the western part of Africa lived a king who planned to marry out his daughter to any man of her choice. The arrogant princess was too proud and saw nothing good in all her suitors until she learnt her lesson the hard way.
From the 18 submitted stories the jury nominated two winners whose stories stood out from the other very good stories – one in the category “fiction” and one in the category “non-fiction”:
Prudence from Nigeria has won in the category “fictional stories” with her story “The Arrogant Princess” – a story about a princess who learnd the hard way that life is not a picnic.
Mamadou from Guinea has won in the category “true stories” with his story “A talented boy”. His story is about a young boy who travelled alone from Africa to Europe to live his dream to become an artist and musician.
