The 10th edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards

Organisers of the 10th edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA) have called upon African filmmakers to submit their films that were publicly exhibited or broadcast between December 1 2022 and December 31 2023.

Films can be submitted here by February 14.

These awards aim to recognise excellence in the African film industry, spanning 27 categories, 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, and more.

Dr Busola Tejumola, head of content and West Africa Channels at MultiChoice, parent company of the Africa Magic channels, said: “Over the past decade, Africa Magic has steadfastly upheld its commitment to spotlighting authentic African stories, especially those that mirror our diverse and rich cultures.

“As we mark the 10th anniversary of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards, we embark on a bold initiative to reevaluate our award categories to further align with global trends and benchmarks. This includes retiring specific categories, streamlining others, and revisiting the voting and non-voting classifications.

“The AMVCAs remains committed to celebrating the incredible talent in the African film and television industry, the amazing people who do the work in front and behind the cameras and you, our viewers who continue to support the hard work of the television and film industry. Thank you for being an integral part of the AMVCA journey.”

The 10th edition of the AMVCAs is sponsored by Africa Magic in association with MultiChoice, with Amstel Malta as the headline sponsor.
