Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu (abbreviated UMK, English: New Music Competition) is a contest for new music organised by the Finnish broadcaster, Yle.

UMK began in 2012, as a new concept for the Finnish selection for the Eurovision Song Contest, replacing the original Finnish Eurovision Song Contest selection event (Suomen euroviisukarsinta) which had been used since 1961.
