The All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) in partnership with African Union Commission has extended the call for entries for the 2014 edition by two weeks, from July 5 to July 19, 2014.
Submission of entries for the continental award project aimed at showcasing the culture of Africa and rewarding the music talents, has opened on May 15, 2014 and closed on July 5, 2014.
Going by the enthusiastic response of African music professionals who have flooded the AFRIMA website with entries from across the continent and from Africans in the Diaspora, the International Committee of AFRIMA was under pressure from the African music and media industry to extend the closing date to accommodate the late entrants who are eager to be part of the award process but are constrained by limited internet access in their various cities.
Entries would close on Saturday, July 19 at 12:00 a.m. and the entry guidelines remain as before on AFRIMA website: www.afrima.org.
Format of submission: Only musical or journalistic works released or published in the year under review- May 31, 2013 to July 18, 2014 are eligible for submission.
Entries should be done by completing the registration form on AFRIMA website and other AFRIMA social media platforms namely Twitter: @AFRIMAWARDS and Facebook: www.facebook.com/AFRIMA2014.
Explaining further, AFRIMA Director of Brand Communications and Sponsorship, Ms Matlou Tsotetsi said, “First, I must say we are impressed by the level of participation by Africa, on the continent and in the Diaspora, in the entry submission process.”.
