Preparations for the much awaited Bulawayo arts Awards get interesting with each day. The organisers of the prestigious ceremony this evening unveiled the gongs that the winners will take home come June 30. The award gong was officially launched via social media micro blogging site twitter, with the organisers going a step further explaining the features of the gong.
Take a look at the Bulawayo Arts Awards gong.
The black base symbolises Bulawayo as a base where our stars are birthed and/or launched.
The Gold and Silver Stars
The gold and silver stars speak for themselves. The awards are about recognising our own stars and pushing them out into the world.
Stars on Top
The 2 stars at the top symbolises that only if our stars or artistes stick together then they will shine more and go further than Byo.
The plaque is silver, shines from afar and for a long time. A quality we believe Bulawayo artists possess.
2017 will be an interesting year in Bulawayo all the best to the nominees. If you happen to win the beautiful gong please keep it safe. Lets meet on Friday at the city hall.
