WITH merely two weeks left, the Namibia Annual Music Awards (NAMAs) organising committee is strongly urging artists and entertainment journalists to submit their applications whilst there is still ample time and not wait until the last days.
The NAMAs organising committee is concerned with the slow pace at which artists are taking to submit their application forms.
Ninety online entries have been submitted and over 25 manual entries collected countrywide.
“The committee has made provision of sufficient time to make sure that all the artists got a chance to apply and but as it stands, the artists are really complacent in submitting their applications”.
There are two weeks left for artists to apply and the committee has confirmed that there will be no extension as a grace period for the artists who are going to fail to apply before the closing date. The application period has been open since October 19 and will run until December 2; and no application will be accepted thereafter.
“We are strongly urging all the artists and entertainment journalists who are interested to be nominated in the NAMA 2017 categories and have not yet submitted their application to start doing so to avoid last minute disappointment or inconvenience,” stressed John Ekongo, NAMAs organising committee member.
He furthered expressed his disappointment that thus far, the number of entry forms received was low and not satisfactory and it is arguably because most artists are waiting until the last week of application.
The artist are further reminded that the application forms are available at both MTC headquarters in Olympia, at Namibia Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) or can alternatively be downloaded on the NAMA website.
The NAMAs main event is expected to take place on April 28 and 29 next year.
