The West Africa Mobile Awards (WAMAS), the first truly West African technology awards targeting the leading mobile and tech companies across the region, are now accepting entries.
The provision of mobile connectivity, products, and services is having a fundamental impact on almost every aspect of society in West Africa. The WAMAS have been created in order to measure this progress. The awards strive to identify, recognise, and celebrate the individuals and companies that are the driving force of mobile innovation in the region.
Supported by Mobile West Africa (MWA), AppsAfrica.com, and the Mobile Ecosystem Forum (MEF), the award gala will take place in Lagos in front of an audience of industry peers, respected judges, sponsors, media, and partners for an evening of celebration and networking.
The awards will recognise the global brands, dynamic start-ups, and visionary individuals who are shaping mobile content and commerce in West Africa. Applications are welcome across 10 categories and the WAMAS are free to enter to ensure a level playing field for all.
An expert judging panel that includes industry leaders, independent journalists, analysts, academics, and VCs will assess all entries. The process will be completely comprehensive, exhaustive and systematic, meaning that the awards and the processes surrounding them are fully transparent.
The deadline for entries is the 28th of February and the West Africa Mobile Award Winners 2016 will be revealed over cocktails and canapés at the awards ceremony on April 21st in Lagos, Nigeria.
