Uganda’s longest running awards return this December 19th for the 15th year running.
Buzz Events the organizers of the awards have today released a list of categories for this year’s awards and that has marked the start of the nomination process.
The awards supported by MTN Pulse retain their purpose of being a voice for Uganda’s youth. The nominations and voting is limited to youth 20 years and younger. Through their voice, Buzz Teenz Awards, the teenagers celebrate their peers, idols and businesses that influence them in positive ways on top of rich entertainment value.
Nominations are now open on www.vote.buzzteenz.com and will close on the 19th of November. The 4 most nominated personalities/ entities in each category will be announced on the 19th Nov to move on to the voting phase. Voting will start on 20th November leading to the grand finale on 19th of December.
A total of 20 categories have been released and there’s been some notable new categories to this year’s edition.
NXT Big Thing: This is a category to shine a light on talent that hasn’t broken out yet but already recognized by their peers. This category is different from Break out star. NXT Big Thing is that one who is looking for a big break but they have traction just waiting for their big break.
TikToker: We can’t ignore the growth of TikTok and teenage content creators who have built massive audiences and engagement. There’s already been debate of who is the hottest TikToker and what better way to settle this argument than put it to a BTA vote.
TikTok Sound: Again TikTok has been a major force with music during the pandemic and several artists have blessed us with different challenges to their sound. It’s time to nominate which TikTok song challenge I rocked for you.
Buzz Teenz Award 2021 finale will stream live Sunday 19th December on Magic 1 TV and on social media via buzzteenz Facebook page and mtn YouTube channel at 2pm.
