Submissions can be jewelry or hollow/flatware, either one-of-a-kind or a prototype for serial production produced within the last three years with an innovative character typical of Friedrich Becker’s work. The inclusion of new materials and techniques is equally as desirable as the utilization of the classic materials for jewelry, hollow- and flatware design.
(Quotation from the submission conditions)

Professor Friedrich Becker (1922–1997) was one of the outstanding artistic luminaries of our time. As an internationally renowned goldsmith, as a creator of kinetic objects and designer within the Düsseldorf art scene, he had a formative influence on the goldsmiths’ art of the second half of the twentieth century.

In awarding the Friedrich Becker Prize – donated by Hildegard Becker – the Gesellschaft für Goldschmiedekunst (Association for Goldsmiths’ Art), Hanau wishes to commemorate Friedrich Becker as an extraordinary individual and important designer, and in accordance with his spirit, to recognize the best of the succeeding generation of designers.
The Friedrich Becker Prize has been awarded every three years since 1999 by the Gesellschaft für Goldschmiedekunst, Hanau, for outstanding, independent design with highest-quality execution.

Previous prize-winners:
Rudolf Bott (1999), Anette Walz (2002), Peter Bauhuis (2005), Robert Baines (2008), Alexander Vohswinkel (2011) and Sam Tho Duong (2014)

Special Exhibition „Schmuck 2017“

International Trade Fair Munich 2017
Halle B (Handwerk & Design)
March 8 to March 14, 2017, from 6.30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Organized by Handwerkskammer für München und Oberbayern

SCHMUCK is an exhibition with international steel power. More than 700 goldsmiths and jewellery designers from all continents have applied to be part of the renowned special exhibition at the Internationale Handwerksmesse in Munich. “The amount of applications alone shows how esteemed this special exhibition on contemporary jewellery is and how much significance is ascribed to it globally,” says Wolfgang Lösche from the Chamber of Crafts for Munich and Upper Bavaria, manager of the special exhibition SCHMUCK. Since its premiere in 1959, it is considered to be style-defining and the gateway for new trends in the author’s jewellery sector. It is an important platform for participants to make a name for themselves and establish contacts in the international goldsmith’s sector.Like every year, the selection of exhibits at SCHMUCK is made by a famous personality from the author’s jewellery world. Cornelie Holzach, manager of the jewellery museum Pforzheim, made the final selection choice for the upcoming special exhibition. All in all, the selection of the qualified goldsmith and art historian depicts "a mixture of surprisingly humorous, ironical, colourful, serious and conceptual jewellery made of different materials.”
