The Body/Harris Prize for an Outstanding Performance of a Composition by a New Zealand Composer is an NZSM performance prize that was created in 2015. It is open to all NZSM performers and ensembles (including jazz and sonic arts).

The winner of the prize is chosen each year by a judging panel at an annual performance competition concert, hosted by the New Zealand School of Music.

The prize was established as an endowment in perpetuity, funded jointly by Jack Body and Ross Harris. The prize will be valued at $500 if the winner is a single performer, and $1,000, divided equally, if a duo or ensemble wins the prize, subject to funds available.
