The Recording Industry of South Africa (RiSA) has opened submissions for musicians to enter the 29th edition of the SA Music Awards (SAMAs). Entries in over 30 genre categories eligible for SAMA consideration must have been released between 1 February 2022 and 14 April 2023.
Submissions can be made on our website www.samusicawards.co.za or delivered physically at Unit 1, 152 Bram Fisher Road, Randburg. The closing date is on 14 April 2023 at midnight. RiSA CEO Nhlanhla Sibisi commented: “The SAMA entries have been on an upward trajectory in the last five years, with last year setting a record with over 1300 submissions. This has been a satisfying vote of confidence in the SAMA and our systems by the music recording community. We look forward to SAMA29 continuing that trend. The music industry has been bustling with new releases across genres and now the time has come to reward excellence.”
