Celebrating Excellence: The SportWest Awards 2023

Introducing the 2023 SportWest Awards, where excellence in sports takes centre stage! A stage custom-designed by the team at PAV, might we add.

The SportWest Awards are WA's premier sport-awards. This prestigious event unites the Western Australian community to acknowledge the remarkable achievements of our local sporting heroes, both on and off the field.

Let us take you on a behind-the-scenes journey of this extraordinary occasion.

Setting the Stage:

Once again, the iconic Optus Stadium served as the backdrop for the 2023 ceremony, and PAV had the honour of designing a bespoke award stage for this special event. The setup showcased three dazzling LED screens from our new P2.6 range, adding a hint of brilliance to the night.

The Prestigious Sports Star Award:

Since its inauguration in 1956, the Sports Star Award has been the pinnacle of recognition for West Australian athletes. Many of WA's outstanding sportspeople have won this award since it was first presented to Morna Pearce in 1956, and this year, Jai Hindley took out the Sports Star award for the second time.

Congratulations to Hindley for this win, making history as the first-ever Australian to win the Giro d'Italia, and for being honoured with a Sir Hubert Opperman Trophy for the Australian Cyclist of the Year.

Why It Matters:

Thousands benefit from participating in and supporting sport at all levels, learning many personal and community values through their sporting endeavours and gaining inspiration from their heroes.

We are proud to help facilitate such an inspiring event that honours local legends and provides a clear path for our youth in Western Australia to aspire to sporting greatness.
