Valur Reykjavík striker Helgi Sigurdsson has been named Iceland's player of the season as the Icelandic Football Association (KSÍ) marked the end of the campaign.
Saturday's KSÍ gala marked the end of the Icelandic campaign, which saw Valur end FH Hafnarfjördur's three-year spell as champions, and Sigurdsson was honoured by his fellow players for his part in the campaign by taking the player of the year award. Valur also took the women's title, but it was KR Reykjavík's Hólmfrídur Magnúsdóttir who was honoured as the player of the year.
FH will play in Europe next season as Icelandic Cup winners, and they can take some consolation after their second-placed finish in the league after Matthías Vilhjálmsson was named as the most promising young player of the year. Under-19 international Rakel Hönnudóttir of Thór/KA Akureyri received the same award in the women's category.
Men's team of the year
Top division players chose their team of the year, which lined up as follows:
Goalkeeper: Fjalar Thorgeirsson (Fylkir).
Defenders: Sverrir Gardarsson (FH Hafnarfjördur), Atli Sveinn Thórarinsson (Valur Reykjavík), Barry Smith (Valur Reykjavík), Dario Cingel (ÍA Akranes).
Midfielders: Matthías Gudmundsson (FH Hafnarfjördur), Baldur Adalssteinsson (Valur Reykjavík), Bjarni Gudjónsson (ÍA Akranes), Davíd Thór Vidarsson (FH Hafnarfjördur).
Forwards: Helgi Sigurdsson (Valur Reykjavík), Jónas Grani Gardarsson (Fram Reykjavík).
Sigurdsson and Gardarsson had battled for the top scorer title throughout the campaign, but two goals on the last day of the season saw the latter win with 13 goals. Meanwhile, Valur's Willum Thór Thórsson was named as coach of the year with his counterpart from the club's women's team, Elísabet Gunnarsdóttir, taking the same title.
Women's team of the year
Goakeeper: Gudbjörg Gunnarsdóttir (Valur Reykjavík)

Gardar Örn Hinriksson was named as Iceland's best referee, while Valur won the men's and women's Fair Play awards. The 90 league games this season attracted 119,644 fans, not bad given Iceland's population of 300,000. Last year's total attendance was 90,026. FH's average of 2,306 was the highest while their 23 September meeting with Valur drew a great crowd of 4,286.
