Gyldendalprisen (Eng. "The Gyldendal Prize") is a Norwegian literary prize , which is awarded annually by the publishing house Gyldendal Norsk Forlag . In 2018 it was endowed with 500,000 crowns (around 50,000 euros).

The award is given to Norwegian authors regardless of their publisher affiliation. It is intended to honor authors who have a significant work of fiction. This also includes books for children and young people. In exceptional cases, the prize can also be awarded for a non-fictional work if it has particular literary and essayistic qualities.

The Gyldendal Prize was first awarded in 1996. It is the continuation of the " Gyldendals legat ", which was awarded from 1935 to 1995.
