The Bremer Kunstpreis (Bremen Art Prize) respectively the Kunstpreis der Böttcherstraße in Bremen (Art Prize of the Böttcherstrasse in Bremen) was founded by the Stifterkreis (Donors’ Circle). The circle’s purpose is to award the Art Prize of the Böttcherstrasse in Bremen, biannually honouring an artist living or working in the German-speaking area. It is awarded to an artist who until then has not received such a public recognition.
The Donors’ Circle appoints a nominating commission made up of ten people. Each member of this commission proposes one artist for the biannual exhibition and award. A separate jury decides the winner of the prize.
