Zimbabwe Music Awards Invites Musicians To Submit Entries For  2022 Award Nomination Consideration

Record companies and/or individual artists are required to submit entries in accordance with the published rules of the Zimbabwe Music Awards which are available on their website

Entries received are then screened for compliance against ZIMA rules for eligibility and they were submitted in the correct award categories. Vetting Committee members overseen by designated ZIMA officials carry out this screening process, known as vetting. 

There will be a panel of Judges to adjudicate most ZIMA categories with the exception of public voting on Song of Year. The Judging panel composition gets reviewed annually. Members of the Supervisory Committee confirm them, taking into account their level of expertise in the relevant categories plus their general knowledge of the music industry.

All recordings (singles and albums) including music videos submitted for ZIMA 2021 must have been commercially released (in other words first made available for purchase) in Zimbabwe during the period 01 January 2021 to 31 December 2021
