Nominations now open for Victorian Sport Awards

NOMINATIONS are now open for the Victorian Sport Awards (VSAs), the most prestigious night for the state’s sporting and active recreation community.

Presented by the state government and Vicsport, the VSAs recognise and celebrate those who made an outstanding contribution to Victorian sport during 2023, by honouring the grassroots heroes who excelled at a community level, high-performance athletes who shone at a national and/or international level and everyone in between.

Across 18 awards, individual and team athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers, administrators, media personnel and the initiatives that ensure Victorians remain active will all be recognised.

Nominations can be submitted via the Vicsport website until Friday, March 1, 2024.

Vicsport Chair, Ritchie Hinton encouraged those who knew someone worthy to put in a nomination for them.

“Alongside the state government of Victoria, Vicsport is delighted to once again recognise and celebrate the incredible achievements of our state’s sport and recreation community at the Victorian Sport Awards,” he said.

“The premier event on the Victorian sporting calendar, it is a special night where we have the opportunity to honour the grassroots heroes who keep our sport and recreation sector thriving, as well as the professional athletes who starred on the world stage in 2023 such as the Matildas, Diamonds and Australian men’s cricket team.

“I urge all Victorians to submit their nominations to ensure their sport is well represented on the night.”

Following the closure of nominations after March 1, four finalists for each of the 18 awards will be decided by esteemed judging panels and announced in April before the winners are revealed on Wednesday, June 12 at Marvel Stadium.

All finalists, family, friends, sporting organisations and clubs are invited to attend the VSAs and celebrate the successes of sport in Victoria.
