The National Arts Council of Zimbabwe (NACZ) encourages stakeholders in the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCIs) who intend to submit their works for consideration for the 20th NAMA to be held in February 2022 that the deadline for the submission of works remains the 30th of November 2021.
By Rodney Ruwende, COMMUNICATION AND MARKETING MANAGER _ NACZ
There will be no extension to this deadline and works submitted after it has lapsed will not be considered. We would like to remind production houses, studios, stables, galleries, organisations, associations, groups, artists and monitors that they can submit their entries physically at designated submission points or online through the NACZ Website.
The collection of entry forms and submission of entries can be done at the NACZ Head office, Provincial offices, Murewa Culture Centre and any of the National Gallery of Zimbabwe offices in Harare, Bulawayo and Mutare.
Online entry forms can be downloaded at www.natartszim.org.zw/, while entries can be submitted through the link: (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSew_QD-qWRaaRe94MxHcNzYEKIIKlU0mzF0956lK23RcAFWTQ/viewform).
All entries must be accompanied by the artiste’s product(s) in the form of videotapes, cassettes, flash drives, CDs, pictures or books. Where it is not possible to submit artworks online, they may still be submitted in person at the above-listed places for use in the adjudication.
Please also note that consideration of selection will only be given to artworks published by Zimbabwean citizens or those with Zimbabwean resident status in the past 2 years covering the period from 1st December 2019 to 30th November 2021.
Individuals submitting works for NAMA are encouraged to supply three sets of the particular works/production to assist adjudicators, except where the product is from the visual arts category. The NAMA disciplines that are adjudicated are dance, film, literary arts, theatre, music, visual arts, media and spoken word.
The 20th NAMA will be a historic occasion hosted under the theme Zimbabwe and Beyond #amalevels celebrating artists who are waving the flag of Zimbabwe high across various artistic disciplines both locally and beyond our borders.
