Nelson Vincent Ayomitunde, Founder, New Man Movement

Coming few days after the official closure of it's submission portal, the New Man Movement, in a press release on its website has announced the release of it's final shortlist for the New Man Gospel Writing Contest 2022. 

The shortlist which contained about 100 entries was selected from a handful of poems, articles, stories and drama pieces which were submitted over the open period from January 31st through March 11th, 2022.

In our earlier report, we gathered that the 2022 edition of the writing contest which has held yearly since 2016 is a gospel writing contest where creative writers across the genres of poetry, drama, prose and article writing are given a space to show their literary expertise. 

We also reported that Nelson Vincent Ayomitunde, President of the New Man Movement revealed through the release on the website that the writing contest has evolved to recognise the efforts and excellence of Christian writers as well as showing them to the world thus, propagating the gospel through creative writing.

The New Man Gospel Writing contest which is in its sixth year is a fully gospel writing contest with the theme, Burning Altars which is taken from the Bible book of Leviticus 6:12.

According to the organisers of the writing contest, entries are open to all Christians and true believers without restrictions to age, race, nationality or location. Submission of entries into the New Man Writing Contest is also free.

Mr Nelson Vincent while speaking to our correspondent on Monday also added that while the participants are currently engaged in an online voting process on the ministry's website, the New Man Writing Contest judges are tirelessly working to ensure that winners emerge in the coming weeks. According to him, the judges including James Coburn, OlaKristi Ayo Obiremi and himself are seasoned literary writers who will look into the entries to select the final winners in the coming weeks.
