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. The Federal Prize is considered one of the most important awards for young artists in Germany. The art academies have already nominated their candidates for the competition. In January 2023, the jury, consisting of three independent experts, will go through the submitted portfolios and select up to eight prize winners whose works will be exhibited. Fatima Hellberg, Director of the Bonner Kunstverein, Anna Nowak, Curator, Artistic Director, Kunsthaus Hamburg, and Christiane Mennicke-Schwarz, Artistic Director, Kunsthaus Dresden, have agreed to serve on the jury for the 26th Federal Prize for Art Students.
The Bundeskunsthalle has been presenting the competition since 1994. The exhibition offers a great opportunity to explore the work of the up-and-coming generation of young artists in Germany.
