Foremost continental award platform, All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) has set August 5, 2022 as its deadline for the submission of entries for this year’s edition. 

According to the AFRIMA Juror, representing Diaspora Northern America, Hadja Kobele Keita, speaking from Washington DC, United States of America, the award platform would not extend the submission date beyond August 5, 2022. 

“It is important that all relevant parties submit their entries on time this year. We are a very thorough and transparent organization, and we have a clear process for the award ceremony every year. Once 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. A firm of international repute, Pricewaterhousecoopers, also audits the entire process. 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.”  

According to the award body, all prospective entries must have been created between August 20, 2021 and August 5, 2022, being the year-in-review for all submissions. It also reiterated that all submissions must be done in consonance with AFRIMA guidelines, terms and conditions, which are also available on its website www.afrima.org.
