AFL Masters Football in WA confers eight awards through out the year:
Most Valuable Player Medals - National Carnivals
2009 saw a change to the Most Valuable Player Medal which up until the Darwin Carnival last year was an award that was presented to a single person adjudged by his fellow teammates to have been Western Australia's most valuable player over all grades at the National Carnival.
Up to and including the 2008 Carnival this single award was known as the Thompson Family Medal .........and it recognised all ages and all divisions playing at a Carnival.
For the first time, 2009 saw the introduction of a single medal for each separate division. The medal retained the same prestigious design that was introduced in 2005 and was awarded to the Most Valuable Player in each division.
