The Prix Romy Schneider (Romy Schneider Award) is awarded annually to a young and upcoming actress working in the French film industry.

It was initiated in 1984 by the French journalists Marlène and Eugène Moineau and is named after the actress Romy Schneider (1938–1982). The prize is awarded by a jury each year in Paris in conjunction with the Prix Patrick Dewaere (formerly the Prix Jean Gabin).


In 1994, the German actress Sandra Speichert was the first non-French –and so far the only German– recipient. The youngest recipient was Vanessa Paradis (17 years old in 1990), the oldest Marie-Josée Croze (40 years old in 2010).
