Awards and grants

Awards, competitions and career grants are rated very highly in the arts and frequently determine who ultimately becomes established in their profession. Art projects are frequently funded by career grants and awards frequently serve to draw the attention of the artistic environment to students’ works.


Entering competitions thus forms an integral part of students’ education at the HKB, and a large number of HKB students and staff have been awarded prizes and grants.
