NAMA is the forum where NACZ recognizes outstanding achievements within the arts sector.
By rewarding excelling artists, NAMA stimulates more interest in the arts and raises the profile of the same.
The awards are a means of encouraging creativity and excellence in the quality of the arts, making Zimbabwe a force to reckon with on the international arena.
In addition, the awards aim to inspire artists to strive for higher and original forms of creativity and provide an opportunity for arts disciplines to jointly market and publicize the arts locally, regionally and internationally.
All entries must be accompanied by the artistes product(s). These could be in the form of videotapes, cassettes, flash drives, CDs, pictures or books.
