The GREEN AUTHOR PRIZE (GAP) was introduced in 2015 as an annual award in recognition of the need to give upcoming Nigerian writers a chance to get heard in a clime where the prohibitive cost of publishing has silenced many.

Eligibility for the GAP is limited to Nigerians, resident in Nigeria, who are between the ages of 14 and 28 years and are yet to have a published full-length book (traditional or self-publishing). This is to achieve the sole purpose of building and supporting local talents.
