& Sharing

Under the Honorary Presidency of H.S.H. Prince Albert II and created in 1990 on the initiative of Georges Bertellotti, a Monegasque journalist and passionate sportsman, the SPORTEL Awards is organised every year in the Principality of Monaco.

SPORTEL Awards aims to highlight all sports disciplines and their champions. To attain this objective, the event offers both an international competition that rewards, through the different categories, the most outstanding sports images of the year and also a program of special public events to help bring together great sports champions and their audiences.

The event is held in conjunction with SPORTEL Monaco, the world’s leading Sports Content Media Rights and Technology Convention.
