The Virginia’s Year in Sports exhibit recognizes the best sports photography of the year as selected by the state news photographers. The exhibit also honors the Virginia Sports Person of the Year with an annual award named in honor of Hall of Fame inductee Steve Guback, who is recognized as one of Virginia’s great sports journalists.

Virginia Year in Sports

The Year in Sports exhibit has been made possible through collaboration with the Virginia News Photographers Association. The Hall of Fame aims to provide visitors with a photo collage filled with images from sporting events across all levels of competition in Virginia. Virginia is fortunate to have many talented and well respected media members call the Commonwealth home, and each year the Hall of Fame recognizes a media inductee as part of its induction ceremony.

  • 33 members of the print and broadcast media have been inducted in to the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame

  • Media inductees have worked for organizations such as The Washington Post, The Roanoke Times, The Richmond Times Dispatch, The Virginian Pilot, The Daily Press, local broadcast affiliates in Virginia, and FOX Sports
