Entries for the 2022 edition of the All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) will close Friday 5 August 2022.
According to a statement, “if you are an entertainer, or you are acting on behalf of one, don’t lose out on a chance to #WINITALL by submitting your song/video. Submit here: https://afrima.org/AFRIMA-2022-ENTRY-SUBMISSIONS/”
AFRIMA Juror, representing Diaspora Northern America, Hadja Kobele Keita, said recently that the award platform would not extend the submission date beyond 5 August.
“It is important that all relevant parties submit their entries on time this year. We are a very thorough and transparent organisation; and we have a clear process for the award ceremony every year. Once the submission of entries ends, we spend time in judging the materials, before we can derive our final nominations list. We also have a specific time allotted to voting. The entire process is also audited by a firm of international repute, Pricewaterhousecoopers. We do not just wake up and nominate people. AFRIMA 2022 will be held from November 3 – 6 this year. To achieve this, we cannot extend deadlines at this point,” she had said.
According to AFRIMA, all prospective entries must have been created between August 20, 2021 and August 5, 2022, being the year-in-review for all submissions. Artistes, artiste managers, music producers, recording companies/labels, video directors, disc jockeys and other relevant stakeholders can submit their work or submit on behalf of their clients via the official AFRIMA website at www.afrima.org. All submissions must be done in consonance with AFRIMA guidelines, terms and conditions, which are also available on the website.
