ESTABLISHED in 2012, the Calistro Prize is an annual writing competition open to all Malaysians, including those residing abroad. The call for entries for 2013 was from March to September, and works were judged on creativity, storyline and writing style.
The Prize was founded by Dr David Kirkham, director of Britain-based management consultancy Calistro Consultants Ltd and a frequent visitor to Malaysia for almost 30 years who now has a home here.
While the inaugural Calistro Prize was handled by SCBWI Malaysia (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) in 2012, the Calistro Prize Committee was later established as an independent body to handle the running of the competition last year.
The winning entry of 2013 – Chris Lin’s Colour Crescendo – received RM8,000 in cash, a medal and a certificate. Two merit awards were also given out – to Lee Su An and Michele Chia – each with a cash prize of RM1,000, a medal and a certificate.
