The 29 year-old was the popular choice after helping the Eagles clinch promotion to the Premier League last term.
"It was a massive year, it was very successful and one I'm not going to forget in a hurry," said Jedinak as he collected his accolade at the fifth annual Australian Football Awards on Wednesday night.
The defensive midfielder was also placed second in the Professional Footballers' Australia Footballer of the Year award, behind Bayer Leverkusen's Robbie Kruse.
Other notable winners on the night included VFB Stuttgart starlet Marco Rojas (Under-23 Footballer of the Year) and Samantha Kerr (Women's Footballer of the Year).
