The National Newspaper Awards (French: Concours canadien de journalisme) are prizes awarded annually for the best work in Canadian newspapers.[1][2][3][4]

The awards were first given in 1949 by the Toronto Press Club, which ran the awards until 1989. They are now given by an independent board of governors and administered from the offices of the Canadian Newspaper Association in Toronto.

There are currently 22 award categories: Breaking News; Investigations; Presentation; Sports; Business; Politics; Long Feature Writing; Multimedia Feature; Short Feature Writing; Columns; Editorial Writing; Arts and Entertainment; Editorial Cartooning; Special Project; News Feature Photography; Spot News Photography; Sports Photography; Feature Photography; International Reporting; Explanatory Journalism; and Local Reporting (for newspapers under 30,000 circulation).
