VAFA Media Awards Shortlist

Posted on - Latest News, Featured

VAFA Media is pleased to announce the shortlisted nominations for the 2017 VAFA Media Awards.

Broken into four categories in a bid to acknowledge the vast contribution of club media volunteers, the awards recognise those who excelled across a variety of media platforms throughout the 2017 VAFA season.

The winners will be announced at Monday night’s VAFA AGM and Awards Night and presented to club representatives in attendance.

VAFA Media thanks all those who nominated, and we hope those who have missed out on making the shortlist will nominate again next year.
