The W-League, the top women's soccer league in Australia, hands out a number of annual awards.

Current awardsEdit

Julie Dolan MedalEdit

The medal is awarded annually to the player voted to be the best player in the W-League, the top women's football (soccer) league in Australia. The award is named after former Matildas Captain and football administrator Julie Dolan. The format was changed for the 2015–16 season, with a panel featuring former players, media, referees and technical staff, who voted on each regular-season match.[1] The following table contains only the winners of the medal during the W-League era. The award was also presented for the best player in the previous Women's National Soccer League prior to the W-League.
