The Recording Industry of South Africa (RiSA) announced today that entries for the 2022 South African Music Awards (SAMAs) have now been opened. Musicians and artists who are eligible for a SAMA consideration are invited to submit their body of work. To qualify, music must be released between 1 February 2021 and 31 January 2022.

Entries are open from today until midnight on 31 January 2022.

RiSA CEO Nhlanhla Sibisi commented: “It gives us great pleasure to see the SAMA maintain its longest run as an award ceremony of stature. We call on all creatives to submit their amazing works for the consideration of our panel of judges.  2021 has seen some great milestones, the growth of Amapiano and South African Artists making strides on the international stages. We look forward to SAMA28, which we hope will be a physical event, after the challenges of SAMA26 and SAMA27 which were delivered amidst a global pandemic. We remain dedicated and committed to providing the best platform on which SA music can shine and be recognised for its excellence.”
