After the disrupted year that was 2020, we welcomed the return of sport for our community and high-performance athletes this year under minimal pandemic impact for many months. The delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics defied the doubters and showcased an event we will never forget, with masked medalists and all. These performances, alongside some great results and stories that have emerged in Canberra sport, give us more than enough reason to recognise and again celebrate the CBR Sport Awards.

As we find ourselves navigating life in the pandemic once more, we have again decided to not hold the annual gala event in 2021. We will however be announcing our finalists and winners within an exciting and engaging online event later this year.

At this time we encourage you to pause and reflect on all that has been achieved this year and consider a nomination to this year’s awards, including the Minister’s Awards for Excellence. Nominations are now open, and close on Wednesday 13 October 2021. The ACT Sport Hall of Fame will return in 2021, after a short pause from last year, and we look forward to welcoming some new inductees and celebrating their very special contributions to Canberra sport.

We look forward to you being part of the CBR Sport Awards in 2021.
