The Arkprijs van het Vrije Woord (E: Ark Prize of the Free Word) is a symbolic price which was created in 1951 by Herman Teirlinck and the editorial team of the Nieuw Vlaams Tijdschrift to counteract ideologicaly driven restrictions on the freedom of expression.

He wanted to bring those persons into the spotlight who actively promote the freedom of opinion. No financial reward is associated with the prize. The names of the laureates become engraved in an art object (Ark) which is kept in the AMVC in Antwerp.
