The 10th annual Ghana DJ Awards beckons, and has announced the call for entries for its various categories.
The DJ event, which is Africa’s biggest, has disclosed that it has begun accepting entries for nominations starting August 23.
Organizers of the scheme, Merqury Republic, are seeking nominations for DJs who have performed significantly in the year under review; from September 2021 to September 2022.
The Ghana DJ Awards, powered by Joy Entertainment, mainly aims to celebrate and recognize DJs for their contribution to the development of the Ghana music industry and entertainment on the electronic music scene.
The call for nominations which opened yesterday will last for 14 days.
The various stages of the Ghana DJ Awards process begin with DJs, music artistes, industry people and fans, submitting entries which are further screened for eligibility and category placement.
The nomination Jury, all involved in the creative and technical processes of recording, production and Disc Jockeying, then participate in the nomination process that determines the four or six finalists in each category. A percentage of the final voting process goes to the Voting Academy and the general public which determines the Ghana DJ Awards recipients (winners) after an audit by a professional firm.
