Morgenavisen Jyllands-Posten commonly shortened to JP, is a Danish daily broadsheet newspaper. It is based in Viby, a suburb of Århus, Jutland, and with a weekday circulation of approximately 120,000 copies, it is among the largest-selling newspapers in Denmark.

The newspaper was the subject of a major controversy concerning cartoons that depicted the Islamic prophet Muhammad in 2005–2006 which sparked violent protests around the world, and have led to several attempted terrorist plots against the newspaper or its employees in the years since.
