The 1995 Brownlow Medal was awarded to Paul Kelly from the Sydney Swans for being the best and fairest player during the 1995 Australian Football League home and away season.

For the first time, the State Government legalised betting on the Brownlow Medal, a move which concerned some due to the high potential for corruption. The pre-count favourites for the medal were Wayne Carey (3/1), Wayne Campbell (7/2), Peter Matera (10/1) and James Hird and Craig Bradley (each 12/1).[1] Eventual winner Paul Kelly was considered a 25/1 outside chance.[2]
