The 2011 edition of the prestigious Ghana Movie Awards (GMAs) meant to honor stakeholders in Ghana’s movie industry was launched last Wednesday at the Golden Tulip hotel in Accra.
Gollywood Productions, organizers of the awards, announced that it had opened entries for Ghanaian filmmakers to submit their works for consideration.
This would be the second edition of the awards and it is slated for December 25, 2011.
Nominations will be announced in November 2011 in Kumasi.
Deadline for all submissions is October 2011 and submission forms can be downloaded from the Ghanamovieawards.com or picked up from Gollywood Productions offices.
According to organizers, only movies released within the period October 2010 and October 2011 would be eligible for consideration. The movie should not have necessarily been released on the movie market in the year under review but once they have been released by the production house, it would be considered.
The launching ceremony on Wednesday brought together a number of stakeholders including actor, producers and director. Visible among them were David Dontoh, Majid Michel, Van Vicker, Nadia Buari, Augustine Abbey, Socrates Sarfo, Ama K Abebrese, Nana Ama McBrown, Mr. Beautiful, Juliet Ibrahim, Emelia Brobbey, Rose Mensah aka Kyeiwaa, and Fred Nuamah, executive producer of the awards.







In all, over 30 awards will be given in various categories including Best Actor and Actress In Lead Roles during the awards night in December.
Ghana Movie Awards’ Committee, headed by ace actor David Dontoh, has added three more categories, namely Best Cameo, Best Actor and Best Actress TV series and Best Picture (TV Series).
The Ghana Movie Awards is being organized by GP Ltd in collaboration with Multi TV’s Cine AFRIK channel and Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG). It is supported by Lufthansa Airlines, Golden Tulip Hotel (Accra, Kumasi and Lagos), United Airlines and Brussels Airlines.
The award ceremony was established last year to honor excellence in Ghana’s movie industry.
