The Ondrej Nepela Trophy (2013–2015, 2017), formerly titled the Ondrej Nepela Memorial (Slovak: Memoriál Ondreja Nepelu), is an annual senior-level international figure skating competition. Named after 1972 Olympic champion Ondrej Nepela, the competition has been held annually since 1993. It became part of the ISU Challenger Series in the 2014–2015 season.

The competition is generally held in Slovakia's capital, Bratislava, except 2009 when it was held in Piešťany. In most years, medals are awarded in four disciplines – men's singles, ladies' singles, pairs, and ice dancing.
