Aqua Books Lansdowne Prize for Poetry/prix Lansdowne de poésie, established in 2007, is awarded annually to the best full length adult book of poetry in either French or English by a resident of Manitoba, Canada.

One of Brave New Words: The Manitoba Writing and Publishing Awards, the award was originally known as the Lansdowne Prize for Poetry. Late in 2007, it was renamed after the new sponsor Aqua Books, and also to reflect the bilingual nature of the award. The Aqua Books Lansdowne Prize for Poetry Reading Series, hosted in conjunction with The Writers' Collective, is based around this award.

Aqua Books closed in early 2012,[1] although they continued to sponsor the award through 2013. In 2014, the award will be presented by the Manitoba Writers Guild.
