Mostly held annually in Lagos, Nigeria, the AMAAs is described one of the most prestigious and glamorous African entertainment industry events of its kind on the continent. Evolving from a one day event — televised live — to an annually chronicled African event, the AMA Awards is now an established engagement platform for filmmakers, industry professionals and all creative industry stakeholders.
The primary aim of the AMA Awards is to facilitate the development and the showcasing of the social relevance of African film and cinema. The awards are presented to recognise and honour excellence in professional filmmaking in the African film industry and the African Diaspora.
Over the years, the award presentation has been attended by numerous international media representatives, Hollywood celebrities, Nigerian politicians, other African politicians, journalists, film industry professionals, actors and actresses from across Africa.
