2017 Victorian Sport Awards

The Victorian Sport Awards is the night of nights for the Victorian sporting community. A night that recognises and celebrates the achievements of our home grown sporting heroes and legends. Each year the Victorian Sport Awards will honour those who have made an outstanding contribution to sport in Victoria as an individual or team athletes, coaches, administrators and volunteers from both metropolitan and regional areas in Victoria.

Held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, the Victorian Sport Awards can be attended by all entrants, nominees, family, friends, sporting organisations and clubs to celebrate the successes of community sport in Victoria.

Last year's Awards attracted an attendance of 500 people including many of the States premier athletes and grassroots heroes. Highlights of the night included an emotional speech from Kevin Sheedy OAM upon receiving the Victorian Government Outstanding Contribution to Sport Award and 2016 Rio Olympic Champion Rower Kim Brennan AM and swimmer Mack Horton OAM, awarded the 2016 Victorian Female and Male Athletes of the Year Award.

2017 Victorian Sport Awards

Voting Panels

Every year, the Victorian Sport Awards receives hundreds of nominations which aim to recognise and celebrate those members of our Victorian community who have made an outstanding contribution to sport and active recreation, and the 2017 Victorian Sport Awards was no exception. The quality and breadth of the nominations received made selecting these finalists a difficult endeavour, which is why the 2017 Victorian Sport Awards sought the help of 32 highly qualified Victorian sports people to constitute the voting panels which would shape these decisions.

The 2017 Victorian Sport Awards had an in-depth voting process, which involved these panels of experts meeting and deliberating over the finalists and winners for each award ahead of the 2017 Victorian Sport Awards on Wednesday 14 March 2018.

As hand-selected panel members, each of these individuals offered a comprehensive understanding of the context and nominations in their respective award categories. The commitment as a panel member included a process of reviewing the nominations prior to the meeting, as well as attending their designated voting panel meeting at the Vicsport office.
