2011 AFL Mark of the Year
Date22 May
LocationEtihad Stadium
WinnerAndrew Krakouer (Collingwood)

The Australian Football League celebrates the best mark of the season through the annual Mark of the Year competition. In 2011, this was officially known as the Hungry Jack's AFL Mark of the Year. Each round three marks were nominated and fans voted online for their favourite here [1]. Andrew Krakouer won the fan vote for 2011 Mark of the Year. The AFL itself later recognised that this was not the best mark taken in 2011, when in 2019 it awarded Mark of the Decade to Andrew Walker's Round 18 mark.
