The Maskew Miller Longman Literature Awards were established in 2007 by Maskew Miller Longman, an educational publishing company in South Africa. The competition was created to encourage writing in all of South Africa’s 11 official languages, with a particular focus on literature suitable for a youth audience.
The genres rotate each year between novels, drama and short stories. It is the only competition to invite entries in all official languages. Past judges include André Brink, John Kani, Riana Scheepers, Andries Oliphant and Niki Daly.
