The J. C. Daniel Award is Kerala's highest award in Malayalam cinema. It is presented annually by the Kerala State Chalachitra Academy, a non-profit institution under the Department of Cultural Affairs of the Government of Kerala, India. Instituted in 1992, the award is given to honour the recipients for their "outstanding contributions to Malayalam cinema".[1][2] Recipients are selected by an independent jury established by the Academy and the Department of Cultural Affairs.[1][3] As of 2016, the honourees receive a statuette, a citation, and a cash prize of 100,000 (US$1,500). They are honoured at the Kerala State Film Awards ceremony.[4]

The Government of Kerala created the award to commemorate the contribution of Indian filmmaker J. C. Daniel, who is often regarded as the "father of Malayalam cinema".[5] The J. C. Daniel Award was managed by the Department of Cultural Affairs until 1997. In 1998, the Government of Kerala constituted the Kerala State Chalachitra Academy, and since that year, the Academy has hosted the award.[1][6] A cash prize of 50,000 (US$740) was granted with the award until 2002.[7] In 2003, the prize money was doubled and, as part of updating it, no award was presented that year. Actor Madhu was the first recipient of the award with the increased monetary prize in 2004.[8][9]

Since its inception, the J. C. Daniel Award has been bestowed on 23 individuals. The award was first presented to film distributor and producer T. E. Vasudevan in 1992. Actress Aranmula Ponnamma is the only woman who has received the honour, in 2005. The 2011 recipient, actor Jose Prakash, died before the award ceremony. His son accepted the award on his behalf. The most recent winner is screenwriter and director K. G. George, who was honoured at the 2015 Kerala State Film Awards ceremony held on 15 October 2016.[10]
