The Ina Nobuo Award (伊奈信男賞 Ina-Nobuo-shō?) is given annually by the Nikon Salon, an organization of exhibition spaces in Japan that is sponsored by Nikon Corporation. The award was started in 1976; it is named in honor of Nobuo Ina, a photography critic who headed the Nikon Salon from 1968 until his death in 1978.

The award is given to the photographer of what is judged to have been the most outstanding exhibition held in a Nikon Salon within the year running from October through September. As of early 2006, the award consists of a statuette, one million yen, and a Nikon F6 camera body and lenses.
