The annual ceremony, aimed to recognize and honour India’s top-performing athletes for the period of 1st January to 31st December 2018, was attended by the biggest names in the sporting, entertainment and corporate fraternity.

A total of seventeen Honours were presented at the ceremony, comprising eleven Jury Honours, including one Lifetime Achievement Honour, and six Popular Choice Honours known as the ‘Star Sports Believe Honours’. The nominees for the Honours were shortlisted by over 200 journalists from the Sports Journalist Federation of India (SJFI), who are experts on the performances of Indian athletes in the period of consideration. The Jury Honours were then decided by the ISH jury which included eminent leaders and Indian sporting champions like Sanjiv Goenka, Pulella Gopichand, Mahesh Bhupathi, Sardar Singh, Abhinav Bindra, PT Usha and Anjali Bhagwat. The winners of the Popular Choice Honours, the ‘Star Sports Believe Honours’, were selected by the sports-loving fans themselves who voted for their favourite sportspeople on Twitter earlier this year.
