The Miki Jun Inspiration Award (三木淳賞奨励賞?) is an award given by the Nikon Salon to photographers under the age of 35. Nikon named the award after the late Jun Miki, one of Japan's pioneers in photojournalism, who was the first Japanese photographer to publish in Life Magazine. The award is given based not just on a single photo but an entire exhibition, including the title, introduction, all of the photos, captions, sequencing, and printing. The prizes consists of a certificate, ¥100,000, and a Nikon D7000 with 18-200mm VRII zoom lens. The two annual Miki Jun Inspiration Awards were added by the Nikon Salon under the Miki Jun Award in 2003.

These awards are given annually to the most creative and remarkable exhibitions through the Nikon Salon's Juna21 program.
