The 2021 SportWest Awards will be held on Thursday 24 February in the Locker Room at Optus Stadium.
Nominations for the Awards cover the 12 month period from 1 December 2020 to 31 November 2021. This year, more than 170 nominations were received across the nine categories.
For the first time, sport administrators will be recognised as part of the SportWest Awards with a specific award dedicated to acknowledge the work they complete to better community sport.
The awards will also usher in a change to the John Gilmour Medal. In previous years, nominations for the Beyond Sport and Community Club categories have often resulted in nominees being eligible for both awards. From 2021, these two categories come together for the Community Club of the Year with the winning club receiving the John Gilmour Medal.
