RTHK Top 10 Gold Songs Awards (Chinese: 十大中文金曲頒獎音樂會) is one of the main C-pop music award in Hong Kong. The award is sponsored by RTHK. Beginning in 1978, it is the oldest major award in Hong Kong, even earlier than the Jade Solid Gold Top 10 Awards. The ceremony is usually held in January following the end of the previous music season. It usually takes place at the Hong Kong Coliseum, sometimes at the Sha Tin Racecourse.
The standard format is that the top 10 songs of each year are presented. Also a "Golden Needle" award is presented in some ceremonies as lifetime achievements.
