Richard Hamilton Acquisition Prize
Presented by ChampionScott

Through the generosity of ChampionScott Partners, the Richard Hamilton Acquisition Prize provides $10,000 for a museum’s acquisition of one or more prints from any period at the IFPDA Fine Art Print Fair. In naming the prize, ChampionScott Partners honors the late Richard Hamilton as a tribute to the artist’s profound influence on their own appreciation of prints and to acknowledge his impact on generations of printmakers.

Applications for 2024 are now closed.

2024 Recipient: Museum Ludwig (GERMANY)

In contrast to royal collections, the Museum Ludwig owes its existence to the extraordinary dedication of private individuals, collectors, and donors. The museum's founding was marked by Peter and Irene Ludwig's donation of American Pop Art. Thirty years earlier, Josef Haubrich's post-World War II art donation to the City of Cologne in 1946, considered lost for a long time, and containing paintings by persecuted and deemed "degenerate" artists, became a symbol of hope for the citizens, and later formed the cornerstone of the museum collection.
