Call for Entries into The New Man Gospel Writing Contest 2022


New Man Writing Contest 2022

The New Man Gospel Writing Contest is a yearly project organised by the New Man Movement. The writing contest evolved to recognise the efforts and excellence of Christian writers and creatives, show them to the world and ultimately preach the gospel of Christ through creative writing.

In our blog post earlier this year, we gave a background story about the New Man Writing Contest and how far we have come. Reading this background story will give you insights as to how the New Man Gospel Writing Contest is organised, its submission guidelines, judge history and past prize winners. You can read the full article here to keep yourself updated with details of past editions of this writing contest. You can also see entries from the previous editions here

The 2022 edition of the New Man Gospel Writing Contest is coming as a re-bounce since we took a break in 2020 and 2021 (due to the COVID-19 pandemic and some organisational restructuring). To participate in the New Man Writing Contest 2022, kindly follow the instructions below.


The theme of the New Man Gospel Writing Contest 2022 is Burning Altars (Leviticus 6:12). All entries must be creatively written in line with the general theme. However, your entries can be in form of:
