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
