The Three Leaf Arts Awards was a set of awards for excellence in the arts, including theatre, in the Western Cape.

Often simply called the Three Leaf Awards, they were highly regarded by the industry.

Originally instituted by the United Tobacco Company in 1965 and sponsored them until 1977, the various awards were made for work produced or displayed in the preceding year. In 1978 the Oude Meester Foundation for the Performing Arts took over the sponsorship, and the project was renamed the Fleur du Cap Theatre Awards.
