The race to the 2022 African Movie Academy Awards, popularly known as AMAA, has officially begun as the African Movie Academy has called on filmmakers to submit their films.
After calls for the entry submissions in early January 2022, the organisers of the award have extended the entry submission till June 15, 2022.
In a recent statement signed by the founder of the awards ceremony, Peace Anyiam-Osigwe, the organisers called on filmmakers to submit their genres of films to vie for the nomination in almost 30 categories of the film award.
“Africa Film Academy, organisers of the AMAAs, is now accepting submissions for the 18th Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAAs). The Africa Film Academy invites filmmakers to submit their feature, short, animation, and documentary work for consideration in nearly 30 film categories of the awards,” the statement read in parts.

“This submission is officially open to only films produced and released between 1 st of May 2021 and April 31st, 2022 (last day of submission). All entries for the 18th AMAAs will be made via Filmfreeway.
