According to Nabimanya, he also emphasized the importance of storytelling in showcasing our different cultures, societies and countries.

In Uganda, a significant number of local television programs and films have contributed to an increase in tourism and provided a solid platform to showcase our history as a people.
In addition to honoring film and television, the iKon Awards hopes to inspire more Ugandans and put art and story at the center.
There is so much talent in this country that can only be showcased, recognized and honored through programs like the iKon Awards,” he said.

Usama Mukwaya, a Ugandan film director, screenwriter and actor who curates this year’s iKon Awards, explained that the awards are driven by three main principles: excellence, transparency and joy.

Awards shows have long been limited to a select group of people, so we want to have inclusiveness and engagement across the board.

“With the iKon Awards, we want to showcase how the Ugandan film industry extends both uptown and downtown.

Please contribute to the industry. We would like to acknowledge your contribution in any way you choose. Kampala is getting a bit of Hollywood, he says, thanks to the iKon Awards.
