Richard Hamilton Acquisition Prize


Through the generosity of Champion & 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, Champion & Partners has chosen to honor 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.

To be eligible for consideration, museums must be primarily devoted to the exhibition of works of art, be open to the public, and be legally organized nonprofits or government entities. Institutions who wish to be considered may make their request in writing to the IFPDA Foundation.
