The LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize seeks to acknowledge and support international artisans whose work reinterprets existing knowledge and makes it relevant for today, whilst simultaneously reflecting its maker’s personal language and distinct hand. The Craft Prize is a showcase of the evolving contribution of craft to the culture of our times. The winning work is selected by a Jury composed of leading experts and distinguished figures from the worlds of design, art, architecture, journalism and curatorship. The winner collects a prize of €50,000. There are also two special mentions who receive €5,000 each. The winner and special mentions will feature alongside the shortlisted finalists in an exhibition and accompanying catalogue in Paris in Spring 2024.
