24th Federal Competition of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research

19 October 2019 to 5 January 2020

Every two years, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research holds the competition Federal Prize for Art Students. The competition is open to students enrolled at the 24 art academies in Germany. Every academy nominates two of their most promising students.

An independent jury selects five to eight winners. The prizes include an exhibition with catalogue at the Bundeskunsthalle, cash prizes and studio grants.

The competition Federal Prize for Art Students is supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and organised by the German National Association for Student Affairs. It chief aim is to support young artists, to give them an opportunity to exhibit their work and to make the transition from the academy to the professional world.

This year’s design of the poster, catalogue and website lies in the hands of the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg.
