The committee says the opportunity is open to Nigerian filmmakers whose films relate to the country and are predominantly in a language other than English.
Such films must have been released in Nigeria between October 2013 and September 2014, and publicly screened at the cinemas or on television.
The criteria for selection include originality of story, as well as good Directing, Acting, Cinematography and sound.
The deadline for submission is Wednesday, July 16, 2014.
This is the first time the Nigerian movie industry has got an invitation to submit since the awards began 86 years ago.
