to our application page


The application period for MK&G messe 2024 runs from April 1 to 30, 2024, exclusively online. 

The call for applications is aimed at applied artists, craftspeople and designers working in any field and materials with a clear focus on producing their own works, one-offs and small-batch production. Outstanding quality is, always has been and always will be the requirement for selection by the expert jury. The MK&G messe strives to present artistic and artisanal excellence, works of uncompromising quality and beauty, but also approaches that adopt experimental and uncomfortable positions. What all the works have in common is that they are responsibly produced to the highest standards in their makers’ own workshops. The objects should be consistent with the MK&G messe’s goal of promoting appreciation for the value of durable and sustainable products. 

That is the guiding principle for our expert jury, which selects both the participants and the award winners. In order to present the very best quality, we need inspiring applications from artists and craftspeople like you. We look forward to hearing from you! 

Please check the Info box (i) carefully before you start the application. Here you will be informed which files should be uploaded in the form. 

Please note that the MK&G messe focuses on high-quality arts and crafts and design. Applications from the classic fields of painting and fashion design (with the exception of artists with a special focus on craft production processes or e.g. headwear) do not correspond to the spectrum.
