Nominations open for 2023 Victorian Sport Awards


Acknowledging the full spectrum of Victorian sport across all levels, including in Whittlesea and Hume, during the 2023 calendar year, nominations are now open for the Victorian Sport Awards (VSAs), the most prestigious night for our state’s sporting and active recreation community.

Presented by the state government and Vicsport, the VSAs recognises and celebrates 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 between February 5 and March 1.

Vicsport chair Ritchie Hinton said that 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.

“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,” he said.

“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.
