About The AMVCAs

Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards are Africa’s most prestigious celebration of film and TV talent behind and in front of the cameras. The AMVCAs also represent the significant investment made by MultiChoice as a show of its commitment to the development of skills and talent on the continent.

The seventh edition of the AMVCAs have 27 categories which include a brand new category: The Multichoice Talent Factory Award. Entries in this category are products of The MultiChoice Talent Factory which is a shared-value initiative that provides a platform for the creative industries to develop their talent and engage with one another through their shared passions. It recognized films made by students from across the continent and it is a judge-led category, meaning the public will not be able to vote in this one.

Just like with other editions of the AMVCAs viewers will get to vote for their favourites in critical categories:

  1. Best Actor in a Comedy (Movie/TV Series)
  2. Best Actor in a Drama (Movie/TV Series)
  3. Best Actress in a Comedy (Movie/TV Series)
  4. Best Actress in a Drama (Movie/TV Series)
  5. Best Supporting Actor (Movie/TV Series)
  6. Best Supporting Actress (Movie/TV Series)
  7. Best Short Film or Online Video

The live edition of the event will be held in Lagos, Nigeria on Saturday14 March at the Eko Hotel. The audience will get to watch on all Africa Magic channels on DStv and GOtv.
