The Carji Greeves Medal is a name given in recent decades to an Australian rules football award given to the player(s) adjudged best and fairest for the Geelong Football Club for the season. The voting system as of the 2017 AFL season, consists of the senior coach, director of coaching and the assistant coaches rating each player out of 15 after every game. The combined votes are averaged to give a final score for that game. To ensure players are not disadvantaged by injury, only a player's highest scoring 21 games count.
Edward 'Carji' Greeves was a champion Geelong footballer who won the inaugural Brownlow Medal in 1924, for the best and fairest player in the Victorian Football League.
