The list of awards to be given out at this year’s event has been expanded, according to the 2022 Headies Awards organizers.
The 15th edition of the Award ceremony, which will take place at the Cobb Galleria Center in Atlanta, US, will now take place on the revised date that was previously announced by the organizers.
The 2022 Headies Awards were originally slated for Saturday, July 2, 2022, but have since been moved to Sunday, September 4, 2022, at the same location.
Three new categories have been added to the award system, according to an official announcement by the organizers. “International Artiste Of The Year,” “Best Inspirational Single,” and “Digital Artiste Of The Year” are the categories. The addition of these categories was also explained.
“The Headies Awards introduces three (3) new nomination categories to its upcoming 15th edition in the spirit of diversity,” they stated. In order to provide a comprehensive and well-rounded celebration of deserving music industry talents, this most recent change resulted from vital consultations with important music and creative industry stakeholders.
