Woolworths Mark of the Year – Prizes and Terms

Prizes

Watch the nominees each round, vote for your favourite mark and go into the running for the weekly cash prize of $200 and the major cash prize of $5000 at the end of the 2016 AFL home and away season.

How it works

Each week's nominated marks are selected by AFL Media's footy experts, but the weekly winning mark is in your hands.

For your shot at the weekly prize of $200, simply vote for your favourite mark. If your mark ends up being voted the weekly winner, you're in the running for the cash.

Voting opens 12pm each round the day after the last game, and closes the night before commencement of the next round at 11.59pm (or in the case of round 23 – closes on Thursday, 1 September 2016).

Please refer to the voting opening and closing times and draw dates listed in the Terms and Conditions below, as exact days of the week may change depending on the fixture for each round.

At the conclusion of the home and away season, the AFL’s All-Australian Selection Committee will select the best three marks from a selection of 28 (the 23 weekly winners, along with 5 other contenders as determined by the AFL Media footy expert selectors). The best three will be based on a 5/4/3/2/1 vote given by each member of the selection committee.

Voting will open on Monday 5 September 2016 at 12pm for the 2016 AFL Woolworths Mark of the Year and the overall winner will be selected by public voting, which will close at 11.59pm on 15 September 2016.

One lucky entrant who selects the overall 2016 Woolworths Mark of the Year will win $5,000 cash.

So watch, vote and win now!
