The 2013 Junior World Rally Championship season is the twelfth season of the Junior World Rally Championship, an auto racing championship recognised by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile, running in support of the World Rally Championship. It was previously known as the WRC Academy.[1]

The Junior World Rally Championship is open to drivers under the age of twenty-six. All teams will contest the same six events – with their best five results counting towards their final championship position – in identical Ford Fiesta R2 cars, prepared by M-Sport.[2] Hankook supplies tyres for all competitors.

Pontus Tidemand secured the drivers' championship after winning at the Rallye de France-Alsace.[3]
