The Ufere Awards aims to champion the best in African Romance by acknowledging excellence in published romantic fiction whether novels, novellas or short stories.
A novel may be entered by the author. After the first round of judging by published romance authors, entries that meet the qualifications to become a finalist then advance to the final round.
Once RWOWA announces the Ufere finalists, a final round of judges evaluates and scores these novels to determine the Ufere Award winners. The Ufere Award winners are announced in February each year.
