In the academic year 2021/22, the Füger Prize will be awarded in the amount of EUR 1,000.

Founded in 1819 in memory of Heinrich Friedrich Füger, professor and later director of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (1751-1818), this prize is awarded every year to students by the prize jury. The jury is composed of representatives from all fields of study (nominated by the heads of the institutes) as well as two external members (nominated by the Senate). This prize is intended to honour Füger's great commitment to giving drawing a central role in artistic education.
