The Winterset Award is a Canadian literary award, presented annually by the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council to a work judged to be the best book, regardless of genre, published by a writer from Newfoundland and Labrador.[1]

The award was created by journalist and historian Richard Gwyn in memory of his wife Sandra following her death in 2000. Winterset was the name of Sandra Gwyn's childhood home in St. John's.[1]
