The Ipswich Town Player of the Year award is voted for annually by Ipswich Town's supporters in recognition of the best overall performance by an individual player throughout the football season. Towards the end of each season, fans are invited to cast their votes for this award. They do this by submitting a paper slip to the club's Portman Roadmarker offices, with the winner being the player who polls the most votes. The recipient is awarded a rosebowl trophy, presented on the pitch before one of the last home games of the season.

The inaugural award was made to Kevin Beattie in 1973 and he retained it the following season. Since then three other players have won the award on more than one occasion. Terry Butcher and Matt Holland have received the honour twice while John Wark has been presented with the award on a record four occasions. Only one winner has gone on to manage the club full-time, George Burley, who won in 1977, although John Wark did act as joint caretaker-manager of the club with Paul Goddard for three matches in 1994.
