The Theodor Wolff Prize is a German journalism prize. It has been awarded annually since 1962 in five categories, equal prizes of €6,000, by the Federal Association of German Newspaper Publishers (de). In addition, at irregular intervals, journalists are awarded the Theodor Wolff Prize for their life's work.

The award is dedicated to the memory of Theodor Wolff, who was forced into exile by the Nazis from Germany in February 1933 because of his Jewish origin and on account of ferocious opposition to the Nazi Party seizure of power the previous month. Until 1933, he was the liberal democratic chief editor of the Berliner Tageblatt.
