All set for GACAA tonight at Golden Tulip Hotel
The maiden edition of the Golden Age and Creative Arts Awards (GACAA) ceremony comes off this Saturday, March 27 at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Accra.
The event, organised by award winning event organising firm, Dolphin House Productions (DHP) is expected to present various awards and recognitions, to individuals and organisations who have contributed tremendously to the development of the creative arts industry of the country.
The event which would begin at exactly 6pm would be characterised by rich display of Ghanaian culture from dressing to music and dance.
More than 30 individuals have been nominated in various categories including Creative Arts Personality of the Year, New Discovery of the Year, Media Personality of the Year Fashion Designer of the Tear, Culture and Arts Programme of the Year, Décor Company of the Year, Brand of the Year, Artiste of the Year, Actor of the Year and Business of the Year among others.
The Chief Executive Officer of Dolphins House Productions, Mr Ellis Adjei, in an interview with The Spectator said his outfit considered the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the creative arts industry and thought it was appropriate to appreciate the effort of individuals and organisations who have been hard hit.
“This pandemic has really affected the arts and entertainment industry a lot. So we want to use the maiden edition of GACAA to appreciate them for their selflessness,” he added.
According to him, climaxing the celebration of Ghana month with such an event was a move in the right direction and commended the Ministry of Tourism and the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) for introducing the month of March each year, as a period of promoting Ghana, either through the food we eat, clothes we wear or movies and music we watch and listen to.
He expressed gratitude to the Ministry of Tourism, GTA, Creative Arts Council and all supporters of the event for their sacrifice, adding that the best was yet to come.
