The Annual Zim Hip Hop Awards are open to all Zimbabweans who meet the eligibility criteria. You must be a citizen or a permanent resident of Zimbabwe for at least six months before the date of submission.

Your music must have been released on radio or public media platforms between November of the previous year and October of the current year. You must also provide evidence of your work and its release date.

The nominees for the awards are selected by a panel of experts from the Zim Hip Hop Awards committee. The list of nominees is announced in the press one month before the event. 

The winners are revealed at the award show, which takes place in the second week of December. The winners receive a framed plaque, along with the gold gong, as a token of appreciation for their outstanding contributions to the Zimbabwean hip-hop industry.
