After the celebration of the African film industry at the ninth edition of the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) in 2023, the award ceremony is back for its latest edition. The awards organisers, Africa Magic in association with Multichoice Nigeria, will recognise the best African film talent in a ceremony in Lagos, Nigeria in May 2024.
The submissions for award consideration must be sent to the entry portal from January 15th to February 14th, 2024. All films made-for-television movies and television series are eligible for submission if they meet the set criteria. Entries are expected from films and series publicly exhibited or broadcast between December 1, 2022, and December 31, 2023.
This year, the show’s organisers announced the end of public voting in the Best Actor or Best Actress in a Leading or Supporting Role categories. Henceforth, the winners in these categories will be determined by a jury.
Therefore, there will be 16 categories for non-voting, including Best Lead Actor and Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Actress, Best Director, Art Direction, Cinematography, Costume Design, Best Writing in a Movie and TV Series, Best Movie and TV Series, Best Short Film, Best Documentary, Best Sound Design, Editing, and Makeup.
There are now eight categories for the audience voting, which include Best Scripted Africa Magic Original, Best Unscripted Africa Magic Original, Best Digital Content Creator, Best Indigenous Language (for West, East, and Southern Africa), Best Multichoice Talent Factory Film, and Best Indigenous Africa Magic Original.
To send in submissions, all filmmakers should visit AMVCA’s website for more details.
