Silver Ferns star Laura Langman has taken out the most prestigious award in New Zealand netball yet again.

Langman was presented the Dame Lois Muir Supreme Award at the New Zealand Netball Awards in Auckland.

This is the highest individual accolade a New Zealand netballer can achieve. It recognises the best New Zealand player across all elite competitions and campaigns.

2019 was a big year for the Silver Ferns captain, who completed another defining chapter in an already illustrious career after leading the Silver Ferns to victory at the Netball World Cup in Liverpool.

It is the third time Langman has won the award, having previously been recognised in 2015 and 2016.

It was also a big night for shooter Ameliaranne Ekenasio, who was named MYOB Silver Ferns Player of the Year and also won the People's Choice vote.

The Silver Ferns' incredible triumph in the Netball World Cup final in July took out Sky Sport Moment of the Year.

Maria Folau and her husband Israel Folau were among those celebrating at this evening's awards.

The Silver Ferns donned their heels instead of their sneakers tonight to walk a red carpet, before a screening of the This is Pure Silver Ferns documentary and the New Zealand Netball Awards rounding off the night.
