José Fuentes Mares National Prize for Literature (Spanish: Premio Nacional de Literatura José Fuentes Mares or simply Premio José Fuentes Mares) is a Mexican literary award that has been presented annually since 1985 by the Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juárez. It is given to a Mexican author who has published a book in the form of short stories, poems or a novel. The award is named in honor of José Fuentes Mares.

The first recipient was the writer Jesús Gardea, who declined the prize. Some well-known authors who have won it include Daniel Sada, Carlos Montemayor, Jaime Labastida, Alberto Ruy Sánchez, Juan Villoro, José Emilio Pacheco and Hernan Lara Zavala.[1]
