Just over a month ago AfricaMagic announced the first ever Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Award, created to recognize and celebrate African film and TV talent.
The news of the awards has taken the continent by storm.
Industry professionals have embraced the initiative and entries are now streaming steadily in to the AfricaMagic offices.
And it’s becoming clear that the awards are on track to deliver a night of spectacular entertainment on March 9.
That’s when the winners will be announced at a special gala event, to be screened live on DStv to 48 African countries.
In order to ensure that all entrants have enough time to process their entries, AfricaMagic has extended the entry deadline.
The new cut-off date for submissions is now 21:00 (CAT) on Friday November 9, 2012.
Entry is FREE and all the info on where and how to enter is available at www.africamagic.tv .
AfricaMagic has also announced that it will accept awards entries at the DISCOP film and TV market which is being held at the Sandton
Convention Centre in Johannesburg from Wednesday October 31 to Friday November 2, 2012.
M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi explains the entry process. “To ensure a methodical and tracked entry process in line with international standards,
our primary method of accepting entries is through post or courier.
However we know DISCOP is a highlight on the African film and TV calendar and is a popular meeting place for the industry.So we will accept awards entries at DISCOP.

Key awards judge Femi Odugbemi has clear instructions for those who have not yet entered the awards.
“I would say make haste! Hurry up and put in your entry. The guidelines are simple and easy to understand. This is an opportunity you would NOT want to miss.”
