The preparations for the 18th Edition of the National Arts Merit Awards (NAMA) are on course. NAMA will be held in Harare on 23 March 2019 at Harare International Conference Centre. The initial date as per the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe usual calendar was 16 February 2019 and the ceremony has been moved forward due to logistical planning.

This year’s NAMA theme is “African Royalty” and it speaks to the quality and competitiveness of art products from Africa. The world is hungry for Zimbabwean works of art from film, visual arts, music, dance, literature amongst others and these should be packaged and marketed accordingly. The theme also speaks to the idea of our artists producing work that tells the proudly Zimbabwean story in a quality and global standard. They are 8 NAMA categories that are Music, Literary, Dance, Visual, Film and television, Theatre, Media and Spoken Word. This year’s NAMA edition received a total number of 1 436 entries
