The Palm Dog Award is a yearly alternative award presented by the international film critics during the Cannes Film Festival. Begun in 2001 by Toby Rose,[1] it is awarded to the best performance by a canine (live or animated) or group of canines during the festival. The award consists of a leather dog collar with the term "PALM DOG".[2] The name of the award is a play on words of the Palme d'Or, the festival's highest honor.

First reported in June 2002,[3] the Palm Dog has been reported by major news outlets around the world, including Financial Times Deutschland,[4] Sydney Morning Herald,[5] The New York Times,[6] the BBC,[7][8] the Los Angeles Times,[9] and ABC News.[10] In 2012 the judges for the Palm Dog were The Times chief film critic Kate Muir, The Daily Telegraph's Robbie Collin, The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw and Heat Magazine's Charles Gant.[11]
