The ARGO AWARDS were presented for the 5th consecutive year and have now become an annual tradition. The presentation of these awards serves a dual purpose: firstly, to reward and support Greeks of the Diaspora who honour their heritage through their creative contributions to society, and secondly, to showcase their achievements for the inspiration of younger generations and the reinforcement of outward-looking perspectives. Additionally, this endeavour aims to solidify Hellenism and the values it represents on a global scale.

The ARGO AWARDS cover the following categories:

  • Sports Award
  • Humanitarian Contribution Award
  • Gastronomy Award
  • Science Award
  • Entrepreneurship Award
  • Innovation Award
  • Culture and Arts Award
  • Public Service Award
