Every year, the editorial board of the NPFO awards two prizes: the Opwijrda prize and the Peter de Smet prize. The Opwijrda Prize goes to the author of the best rated article published in the NPFO in the previous year. The author of the best-reviewed case report of the past year receives the Peter de Smet Prize. A minimum of two items must be eligible for annual awards.

The Opwijrda Prize is named after the Nijmegen pharmacist R.J. Opwijrda, founder of the Pharmaceutisch Weekblad and editor-in-chief from 1864 until his death in 1891. The Opwijrda prize for NPFO items was first awarded in 2008. Previously, there was a series of Opwijrda awards for the best PW item.

The Peter de Smet Prize was first awarded in 2017 and is named after Prof. Peter de Smet, emeritus professor of quality of pharmaceutical patient care at Radboud University Nijmegen. Peter de Smet was frequently involved in practical research in pharmacy, partly due to his appointment at the Royal Dutch Society for the Promotion of Pharmacy (KNMP).
