The West Africa Mobile Awards (WAMAS), which celebrates the best in mobile and technology across West Africa, now accepts entries for the 2017 edition of its awards night. Following the huge success of the inaugural WAMAS last year in Lagos, the awards will once again strive to identify, recognize, and celebrate individuals and companies that are the driving force of the region’s mobile ecosystem.

Supported by BBM, Wimbart, Kasi Insights, DressMeOutlet, Mobile West Africa (MWA) and AppsAfrica, the awards will recognize global brands, dynamic start-ups and visionary individuals who are shaping mobile content and commerce in West Africa.

Applications are welcomed across 12 categories at no cost to entrants. New for 2017, shortlisted finalists will be unveiled during day 2 of Mobile West Africa, providing them a platform for exposure. Winners will also receive a wide range of benefits and advisory services to help drive their businesses forward.

“After the staggering number of entries we had in 2016 and the progress the industry has made, we cannot wait for this year’s entries to come flooding in. I think the free to enter model and completely independent ethos behind the awards really hit home last year. All it takes is a few minutes and the next thing you know you and your company could be on stage picking up an award. What’s not to like about that?”

An expert judging panel that includes industry leaders, independent journalists, analysts, academics, and VCs will assess all entries.

The deadline for entries is 31st March and the West Africa Mobile Award Winners 2017 will be revealed at the awards ceremony on 18th May at Rooftop in Lagos, Nigeria.
