About this opportunity

It’s that time again! That time to give creatives and innovators their flowers when they can smell them.

We present the 5th East Africa Sondeka Awards 2023!!

We’re tired of award ceremonies that “celebrate East African artists” that focus on a select few musicians, some of whom mostly make jingles. Sondeka Awards EA is about giving YOU the chance to vote for the East African artist you think are AMAZING. Not who your radio station or weekend magazine says you should love but the musicians, poets, visual artists and other creatives who you think deserve to have their work recognised. This year Sondeka Awards EA is open to nominations from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda and will continue to expand! Submit your work in the following categories:

Experimental DJ Set | Contemporary Art | Online Content Creator | Digital Art | Disruptive Music Video |Experimental Music | Live Bands | Online Radio | Podcast | Poetry | Short Story | Spoken Word | Game/App Developer | Best Creative
Collective | Short Film




Creatives from Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda
