BAVARIAN ACADEMY OF FINE ARTS
in cooperation with the Chair of Landscape Architecture and Industrial Landscape, Technical University Munich
In connection with the Sckell Ring of Honour awarded by the Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts, the Sckell Students Award is held irregularly in form of a poster competition, in which students are asked to show in word and image a conceptual engagement with the Sckell Ring laureate and his or her current relevance for landscape architecture and the art of the garden.
We are happy to announce that this year's Sckell Ring of Honour will be given to the British-American garden historian Prof. em. John Dixon Hunt!
Prize money is overall € 5,000. Entitled to participate are students of landscape architecture, garden history and related fields, who were registered at a university or college in German-speaking countries (Austria, Germany, Switzerland). The award ceremony will take place in connection with the bestowal of the Sckell Ring of Honour at 19 Oktober 2017 in Munich.
The description for competition submissions will be available for download at www.sckell.wzw.tum.de on 29 July 2017. A fixed layout (InDesign file, including a portrait of the Sckell Ring laureate) will also be provided, and this must be used as basis for each contribution. Deadline for submission of the posters is 8 September 2017 (additional digital submission by upload at www.sckell.wzw.tum.de).
