The Bavarian Crafts Council is dedicated to the promotion of contemporary crafts. A key aspect of its work is supporting young artisans.This prize is therefore aimed at young artisans under 35 years of age who are about to embark on their professional career. The prize is open for entries from all over the world and from all areas of applied arts. Prizes go to works that show excellent design based on fine craftsmanship.
