The Yamaha Popular Song Contest (ヤマハポピュラーソングコンテスト Yamaha Popyurā Songu Kontesuto?), generally known as Popcon (ポプコン Popukon?), was a Japanese popular music contest which ran from 1969 to 1986. It was sponsored by the Yamaha Music Foundation and was held annually (later, twice a year) at the Yamaha Resort Tsumagoi in Kakegawa, Shizuoka, Japan.

The grand prix winners were to be qualified for the World Popular Song Festival.
