During EuroPride Valletta 2023, individuals who have distinguished themselves in Malta and abroad, in different fields to promote the civil rights of the LGBTIQ+ community and who have provided exceptional service to individuals with different sexual orientations, will be honored.
During the Mvintage Pride Awards, the public will have the opportunity to choose the winner of the People’s Choice award, for which three people are nominated.
Public voting will start on the 29th of August and ends on the 5th of September, 23:59. The winners of the awards are announced on the 12th of September at the Pride Village, which will take place in Pjazza Tritoni in Valletta, where many of the EuroPride activities between the 7th and 17th of September will be held.

The jury will choose the winner of seven other categories, including the award “Transcendence in Artistry” for the individual who, through different forms of art, contributed to the cause of the LGBTIQ+ community.
Another award, called “Influence and Impact,” will reward an individual or individuals who have sent a positive message in this field through their work.
The “Equality in Healthcare” Award will recognize the work of a professional in the medical field.
The “Unconditional Love of a Parent” award will be for parents who have shown the greatest love and support towards their LGBTIQ+ children.
The award for sports will be named “Courage in Sports,” and another award will be “Excellence in LGBTIQ+ Representation Worldwide.”
Lastly, but not least, the “Lifetime Achievement Award” will be given to a person who throughout their career has worked diligently to bring about equality.
These awards are a small token of appreciation and recognition for the work of individuals who have done more than what is normally expected of them to promote respect, dignity, and love among and between LGBTIQ+ individuals.
