First Bank of Nigeria Limited, Nigeria’s Number One Bank Brand in its bid to promote virtual literacy and creative writing for social medium platforms and blogs has lent its support to the Writer 2013 an online reality blogging competition which kicked off yesterday Sunday, March 10, 2013.

The Writer 2013, an exclusively online reality blogging competition in its second edition enables participants who have a flair for writing across the globe to carve a niche for themselves in the virtual literacy world. Participants also stand a chance of winning cash prizes of $1000, $750 and $500 respectively.

The call for entries which started late last year, received over two thousand entries from Nigeria, United Kingdom, United States, Canada and other African countries.  Ten finalists emerged from these entries after a careful screening process by the judges and these finalists will go through rigorous timelines and exciting weekly themes. Distinguished judges would vet the entries while members of the public would vote and eventually eliminate seven contestants to leave the last three standing.   In conjunction with the Naked Conversation (NakedConvos) The Writer 2013 Online Blogging Competition promises to be both innovative and exciting.

To actively participate in the competition, people can visit and follow the live eviction shows through these twitter handles @thenakedconvos and @firstbankngr at 5pm on Sunday starting this week. You can also follow the event through the hashtag : #TheWriter
