Voting Closed After An Exceptional Public Response to #gsport18

The 2023 Momentum gsport Awards Public Voting campaign attracted interest from far and wide as 60 finalists tightly contested across 20 categories. Public Voting for #gsport18 closed midnight on Thursday, 31 August.

This year’s process brought in over 5,5k new gsport members signed up to support the finalists in daily voting; and members casted more than 25 000 votes.

The votes are currently being tallied and audited by independent auditors to ensure a free and fair process.

The public votes make up 20-percent of the finalists’ overall mark, with the remaining 80-percent under the adjudication of the esteemed judging panel.

Aside from the opportunity to win in each category, the individual who receives the most public votes, but does not go on to win the main prize, will win the Public Choice award.

The voting period was supported by a strong media drive and social media fanfare, giving all finalists an opportunity to garner support and showcase their excellent achievements of the year.

The 18th edition of the longest-running women’s sport awards in South Africa will celebrate Rural, African and Global women’s sport success as the platform continues to grow its footprint worldwide.

The award winners will be announced on Tuesday, 12 September.
