Esso Journalism Award (Prêmio Esso de Jornalismo), formerly known as Esso Reportage Award (Prêmio Esso de Reportagem), is an annual Brazilian journalism award given by the company Esso in Brazil. The award was created in 1955 by Ney Peixoto do Vale, who took inspiration from the Pulitzer Prize.[1]

The main award is a trophy and R$ 30,000 and goes to paper press only. Other categories are awarded with amounts of money ranging from R$3,000.00 to R$20,000.00, besides certificates.
