Most Valuable Player Medals – National Carnivals


2009 saw a change to the Most Valuable Player Medal which up until the Darwin Carnival in 2008 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, this single award was known as the Thompson Family Medal. 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, named after significant individuals who have represented the state with distinction.

The Brian Thompson Medal - Most Valuable Supers Player

The Bruce Arlow Medal - Most Valuable Masters Player

The Mike Adams Medal - Most Valuable Seniors Player

The John McKibbin Medal - Most Valuable Super Seniors Player

With the addition of a WA Women’s Masters team travelling to the National Carnival in 2018, a new award, the AFL Masters WA Women’s Most Valuable Player Medal was added.

The AFL Masters WA Womens – Most Valuable Player

In 2020, the Board decided to rename the “Most Valuable Player” awards to the “Fairest and Best Player” award from each age group and add the AFLMWA Fair and Best awards to any age group that had more than one team representing the state.
