three ghanaians awarded

Three winners for the first and second and third place. But do note carefully, there is not first place and therefore no first prize.

This is all about the Ghanaian William Burt Award for African writing. No first prize was handed out. Two people came second,m and one came in third place.

Read about this award here.

I tried to find out a bit more about this elusive William Burt. It seems he is a Canadian philanthropist. Anyone knows more about this William?
