Committed to supporting literature and helping provide access to books

Since 2019, we have been running the Orange Book Award in Africa to promote young, francophone African authors and local publishing in Africa. This prize is run with support from the Orange Foundations in French-speaking Africa, which organize reading committees tasked with selecting the books.

These committees are made up of authors, journalists and booksellers. The winner of the Orange Book Award in Africa is awarded €10,000 and their work is promoted.
