Make sure to catch the next NAMAs information sessions to air all your queries.

The host of the Namibia Annual Music Awards for the past three years, Swakopmund, featured the start of the award’s information sessions over the weekend.

The information session is imperative and necessitated by the need to apprise artists and entertainment journalists about the awards rules and regulation, entry pre-requisites, how to complete the forms manually and online. In the mist of inquisitive artist both established and upcoming, Erasmus Nekundi of the organizing committee commended the coastal artists for attending the session whilst putting emphasis on the significance why prospect NAMA nominees need to avail themselves for this session.

“We are quite excited and pleased with the artists’ turnout. In the past we have recorded a number of artists whose entry forms were disqualified, sometimes not because they have not met the requirements, but because their entry forms were inaccurately completed. Generally, when you are equipped with the right information, you are bound to do things correctly. The info session is thus aimed to share the necessary information which artists should know before they apply to enter in the NAMAs,” said Nekundi.

Nekundi expressed contentment with the proceeding of the coastal session.

“The session was well attended and we anticipate the same for the next upcoming NAMA information sessions. Early next week, we will share the information with the artists re the next session” concludes Nekundi.

Call for Entries for the 10th NAMAs is now officially open. The deadline for entries is 13 December 2019 and no extensions will be allowed. Only artist who commercially released albums whether online or in hard copy between 1st December 2018 and 30th November 2019 will be eligible for entry. No rule changes have been made artist are encouraged not to wait till the last minutes before they enter because the Vetting Committee will disqualify their entries if they do not comply.

Following the information session on Friday, an open session was also conducted on Saturday (09 November) where the NAMA team dedicated the time to strictly assist the artists with completing their entry forms. The NAMAs call for entries was announced last week Monday, and this is the first information session which will be followed by one in Windhoek, Ongwediva and Keetmanshop.
