About BKV (Bavarian Crafts Council / Bayerischer Kunstgewerbe-Verein) 
One of the main objectives of the BKV is to promote the younger generation of artists, i.e. to support the professional and artistic development of young artisans financially through publications and by means of expert assistance. The BKV-Prize was therefore created in 2006 and is awarded once a year.

Founded in 1851, The Bavarian Crafts Council (Bayerischer Kunstgewerbe-Verein or BKV) looks back on more than 150 years of history. Today, it is a professional association for the promotion of contemporary crafts with around 400 members. Located in the centre of Munich, BKV maintains a forum for ARTS + CRAFTS, which consists of the “Gallery for Applied Arts” (Galerie für Angewandte Kunst) and a spacious shop with a wide range of contemporary works of art. The Bavarian Crafts Council also participates in a number of international fairs in Germany and abroad.
