The McKitterick Prize is a United Kingdom literary prize. It is administered by the Society of Authors. It was endowed by Tom McKitterick, who had been an editor of The Political Quarterly but had also written a novel which was never published. The prize is awarded annually for a first novel (which need not have been published) by an author over 40. As of 2009, the value of the prize was £4000.

The McKitterick Prize was first awarded in 1990.
