Cameron's goal of the year contender Jeremy Cameron goes alone for a sensational goal

Young GIANTS star Jeremy Cameron has been nominated for the British Paints Goal of the Year for his effort in the second quarter against Geelong at ŠKODA Stadium last Saturday.

Cameron booted four goals for the GIANTS to take his season tally to 31 and his career total to 60 from just 27 games.

The 20 year-old's record compares favourably with some of the great forwards of the modern era. At the same stage of their careers Tony Lockett had kicked 81 goals, Jason Dunstall 78 goals, Gary Ablett Snr 67, Matthew Lloyd 58 and Lance Franklin 33.

AFL fans will be given the chance to vote for their favorite mark and goal each week in order to go into the running for the weekly cash prize of $200 and the major cash prize of $5000 at the end of the season, thanks to Lifebroker and British Paints.

Should the winner of the public vote differ from the mark and goal as selected by the AFL panel, both nominations will be included at the end-of-year voting by All-Australian Selectors.

Voting opens for the previous rounds nominations every Monday at 7pm and will close the following Monday at 12pm (exact days may change depending on fixture).

At the conclusion of the home and away season, the All-Australian Selection Committee shall select the three best goals and marks from the 23 weekly selections from the AFL panel, along with any public selections that differ. The selection will be based on a 5/4/3/2/1 vote given by each member of the selection committee.

The top three selections for the Lifebroker Mark of the Year and British Paints Goal of the Year will be placed on www.afl.com.au by 7pm on 9 September 2012.

Fans are encouraged to vote for who they think will be awarded the mark and goal of the year, to enter the major prize draw. Voting will close on Monday 16 September.

The Lifebroker Mark of the Year and British Paints Goal of the Year will be announced prior to the 2013 Toyota AFL Grand Final.
