NOMINATIONS are open now until Friday, March 1 for the 2023 Victorian Sports Awards (VSAs), regarded as the most prestigious night for our state’s sporting and active recreation community.
Presented by the Victorian 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.
The 2022 VSAs saw Aussie motorsport rising star Oscar Piastri, who has strong family ties to Shepparton, honoured with the Young Athlete of the Year Award. His mother Nicole Piastri accepted the award on his behalf at the 2022 awards night.
Once nominations close 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 12 June 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. For more information, including award categories, visit
