Application for the Frieserich Becker Prize 2020 is open.

In awarding the Friedrich-Becker-Prize the Gesellschaft für Goldschmiedekunst e.V. (Society of Goldsmiths‘ Art) commemorates this extraordinary man and great designer Friedrich Becker, and following his path it is given to the very best of our generation of designers. The prize is awarded for originality, exceptional design and highest execution of craftsmanship.

Submissions should be jewelry or hollow/flatware, either one-of-a-kind or a prototype for serial production with an innovative character. The inclusion of new materials and techniques is equally as desirable as the utilization of the classic materials for jewelry, hollow- and flatware design.
