This year we have 17 sports awards, 12 social media awards, and Half, Full and Club Colours to announce and present. Nominations for these are now open. The selection of awards are designed to look at not only the results on the surface, but also to recognise and reward the work put in behind the scenes.

Nominations may be made by any UEA student or staff member, including but not limited to: club committee members, activators, members of the Student Sport Exec and UEA’s Physical Education & Sport Department. Where possible, please ensure your club only submits one nomination per category. The winners are chosen based on the quality of the nomination, not the quantity of nominations received, i.e. if we receive a club of the year nomination from every single member of your club, another club who only submitted one excellent nomination could still win the award over you.
Please note all achievements should have taken place between April 2020 and June 2021 (i.e. you may submit nominations for events that took place last academic year after the nominations for the 2020 Sports Awards had closed).
All nominations will be assessed by a judging panel consisting of the Student Performance Sport Manager, Student Sport Operations Manager, Student Sport & Physical Activity Development Coordinators, Student Sport Administrators, Head of Student Opportunities, and the Activities and Opportunities Officer.
Nominations for all awards will open on Friday 7th May at 2pm and will close on Sunday 13th June at 11pm. Any nominations submitted after this date will not be considered.
