On Monday night, the nominees were unveiled and even the trophy that would be won by the winners in the various categories. In all, there would be 28 awards in 26 categories. Viewers would have the opportunity to chose their winners in 6 categories, while 18 other categories would have experts in the industry choosing the winners. Awards would also be given in 2 other categories namely-Trailblazer of the Year & the Industry Merit Awards, the latter which would be given to a worthy veteran of the movie industry. Nominees in 2 categories- Best Documentary & Best online Video, were not named on the night and the reason given was because the nominee selection team prefers to award certificates of encouragement to all the entrants in the 2 categories.
The night of the unveiling was fun-filled as many of the industry's practitioners from around Africa were in attendance. As with all things organized by AfricaMagic, it was a classy affair, it was an opportunity for many to network amidst a very convivial atmosphere.
