The Eric Breindel Award for Excellence in Opinion Journalism, also known as the Eric Breindel Journalism Award, is an annual award commemorating Eric Breindel, a former editorial page editor of the New York Post. It is given to "the columnist, editorialist or reporter who best reflects the spirit of Mr. Breindel's writings: Love of Country and its democratic institutions as well as the act of bearing witness to the evils of totalitarianism."
The award was instituted in 1999 with an endowment from Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, and is administered by the Eric Breindel Memorial Foundation. From 2006 onwards, winners receive $20,000; earlier winners received $10,000.
As second award, the Eric Breindel Collegiate Journalism Award, has been given annually since 2006. As of 2009, it offers $10,000 plus a paid internship at Fox News Channel, The Wall Street Journal, or the New York Post.
The awards are announced in June every year.
