The gun is fired and the race has began as organizers of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA) calls for entries for the 2016 edition of the event.
Regional Director for M-Net (West), Wangi Mba-Uzoukwu, said: “We are pleased to announce the call to entry for the 2016 edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards. At Africa Magic and MultiChoice, we have continued to show our support to the film and television industry across Africa even as we continue to provide world class entertainment for Africa by Africans. For the 4th edition of the AMVCAs, we are inviting all entries for film and television works that are produced and broadcast or publicly exhibited from October 1st, 2014 to September 30th , 2015.”
The AMVCA which was created to celebrate the contribution of African filmmakers, actors and technicians is thought to be the biggest film awards event in Africa.
The AMVCA 2016 which will be the fourth edition, promises to be even more glamorous, however, analysts question the omission of entries from North Africa, which has persisted since the inception of the awards.
