East Africa has not been so lucky with continental award shows of recent, always losing to the cool and rich Naija boys, at times missing out on the nomination altogether, generally it's a sad East world.
But who knows, 2016 could actually be different and thus we need to wait for it with enthusiastic minds don't we? 
And probably the reason this news has to excite you; Africa Magic, the continent’s leading provider of African content has announced the call to entry for the 2016 edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCAs).  
They  are inviting all entries for film and television works that are produced and broadcast or publicly exhibited from October 1st, 2014 to September 30th , 2015.”
The AMVCAs were created to celebrate the contribution of African filmmakers, actors and technicians in the success of the continent's film and television industry and with the success of the previous three editions, preparations for the 2016 edition are underway.
MultiChoice Africa CEO, Tim Jacobs, commented: “We are very excited to once again bring the AMVCAs to our viewers across the continent and indeed the world. The 2016 edition will make it four years of celebrating Africa's finest."
Mba-Uzoukwu, Africa Magic representative said that the African film and television industry continues to show tremendous growth in the kind of content we see and the quality of existing and up and coming talent. 
"The previous editions of the AMVCAs have had a significant impact on filmmaking and I am very certain that the next edition will have an even bigger impact on film and television across Africa."
The third edition of the Africa Magic Viewers' Choice Awards ceremony took place in Lagos in March 2015, and was broadcast live to DStv and GOtv audiences across the continent.
