In 1962 Maz'ya was awarded the "Young Mathematician" prize by the Leningrad Mathematical Society, for his results on Sobolev spaces: he was the first winner of the prize. In 1990 he was awarded an honorary doctorate from Rostock University. In 1999, Maz'ya received the Humboldt Prize. He was elected member of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 2000, and of the Swedish Academy of Science in 2002. On the 31th of August 2003 he was awarded the Celsius Gold Medal, the Royal Society of Sciences in Uppsala's top award, "for his outstanding research on partial differential equations and hydrodynamics". He was awarded the Senior Whitehead Prize by the London Mathematical Society on the 20th of November 2009. In 2012 he was elected fellow of the American Mathematical Society.

Starting from 1993, several conferences have been held to honor him: the first one, held in that year at the University of Kyoto, was a conference on Sobolev spaces. On the occasion of his 60th birthday in 1998, two international conferences were held in his honor: the one at the University of Rostock was on Sobolev spaces, while the other, at the École Polytechnique in Paris, was on the boundary element method. He was invited speaker at the International Mathematical Congress held Bejing in 2002: his talk is an exposition on his work on Wiener–type criteria for higher order elliptic equations. Other two conferences were held on the occasion of his 70th birthday: "Analysis, PDEs and Applications on the occasion of the 70th birthday of Vladimir Maz\'ya" was held in Rome, while the "Nordic – Russian Symposium in honour of Vladimir Maz'ya on the occasion of his 70th birthday" was held in Stockholm.
