The Centre For Memories, in collaboration with the Legacies of Biafra Heritage Project, is pleased to announce that registration has re-opened for the Ọzọemena Narrative Art Contest.

We seek young people between the ages of 16 and 35 to engage in an artistic representation of their knowledge/memory of the Nigeria-Biafra War (1967 - 1970).

The contest has three categories including short story writing, poetry and drawing/painting and contestants can express their knowledge/memory of the war via ANY or ALL of these means.

There will be cash prizes for winners (1st Place - N50,000; 2nd place - N30,000; 3rd Place - N20,000, and other consolation gifts). Also, selected contestants will participate in an interactive session with War Veterans and stand a chance to have their works included in a later exhibition at the Centre For Memories gallery.
