NAMA calls for trophy designers
By Anesu Mirisawu
NATIONAL Arts Council of Zimbabwe (Nacz) is calling on creative designers to design trophies for the National Arts Merit Awards (Nama) that honour living legends who have illuminated the sector in the past 40 years.
“The deadline for submission of designs is December 21, 2020 and the contest is open to anyone in Zimbabwe. Each entry must be the original work of the persons identified in the entry,” Nacz said.
“The contest is not open to any persons employed, past or present by the National Arts Council of Zimbabwe or its partners for the Nama,” said Nacz.
“The winning design will be manufactured and presented to recipients of the awards on February 27, 2021 at a colourful event hosted to be by Nacz and its partners,” said Nacz.
The first-place designer is set to receive a $65 000 cash prize, attendance to the Nama legends awards ceremony and recognition in front of the legends and a large virtual crowd. Nacz is a parastatal whose thrust and mandate is to develop and encourage an enabling regulatory and investment framework, which defines and empowers Zimbabwean creative industries.
