It is officially that time of the year again, when the Nigerian Entertainment Awards (NEA Awards) begins calling on all members of the entertainment industry to submit their work for consideration; and all fans and supporters to vote for their favorite entertainers in the 2013 NEA Awards.

With its growing popularity and respectable standing amongst the Nigerian, and African entertainment industry, the producers of the NEA Awards have decided to expand the award categories this year to include regional recognition for artists in the music category. The three awards added are East/West/South African Artist or Group of the Year. The organizers decision to extend the category to include all three African regions simply goes to emphasize the organization’s commitment to celebrating, recognizing and promoting not only the Nigerian entertainment industry, but also the thriving African industry as well.

Keeping in line with what has come to be the tradition of the past three years, the 2013 NEA Awards nominees will be announced at the annual Nomination Gala, scheduled to hold on May 30th in Lagos, Nigeria. The Nomination Gala is an opportunity for all nominees to celebrate their nomination in Lagos, surrounded by their fellow colleagues, members of the overall industry and well wishers, before the main award ceremony here in New York City.

Fans will have the opportunity to begin voting right after the Nomination Gala. The NEA Awards considers artists, actors, actresses, entertainment and media personalities for awards based on their body of work from the previous year – March 2012 and March 2013. Any one interested in submitting their work for consideration can do so via email: info@nigeriaentawards.com. The producers of the NEA Awards are thankful to all who have been a part of the continued success of the award show over the years, and are looking forward to making this 8th year even better. The 2013 NEA Awards is slated for August, in New York City.

For all things NEA Awards tune in to Cool FM 96.9 (Lagos), the official radio partner of the 2013 NEA Awards. Follow the NEAs on Twitter @NEAAwards and ‘Like’ the Facebook page ‘NEA Awards’
