Readers announces winners of the second annual Readers Prize for Gifted Young Writers

Amman, Jordan – December 2015 – Readers Bookshop – the leading bookshop in Jordan – recently hosted an awards ceremony to announce the winners of its second annual Readers Prize for Gifted Young Writers. The ceremony was held on Monday, November 30, at Readers’ flagship location in Cozmo Centre at 7th Circle, and was attended by the top 10 finalists of the competition, alongside their friends and family, the competition judges, and a number of local media representatives.
During the awards ceremony, the judges for this year’s competition unveiled the top three winners, who each received cash prizes, as well as vouchers from THE Group – the retail pioneer behind Cozmo, Hamleys, Readers and BHS. The first-place winner of this year’s Readers Prize for Gifted Young Writers was 17-year-old Dina Natour, a student at Al Ridwan School, who took home JD250 in cash, as well as a JD150 voucher redeemable at any of THE Group’s retail outlets. The second- and third-place winners were Noor Khaled (age 16, Modern American School) and Faisal Al Asad (age 15, International School of Choueifat), respectively, who also took home cash prizes and THE Group vouchers.
Commenting on the occasion, THE Group’s Regional Marketing & Communication Manager, Hiba Manna, said, “Building on the success of last year’s inaugural Readers Prize for Gifted Young Writers, we at Readers are delighted to continue celebrating the incredible talent of Jordan’s youth. By providing a platform for young people to exercise their creativity, we hope to continually elevate and enrich the country’s literary landscape. Yet again, this year’s submissions far exceeded our expectations, demonstrating the exceptional skill and maturity of the Kingdom’s young writers. I would like to once again congratulate the winners and finalists, as well as everyone who participated in this year’s competition.”
