Beckers Art Award has been presented every year since 1987 to a young Swedish artist.
Petra Hultman is the 2018 recipient of the Beckers Art Award.
Ulf G. Lindén had a passionate interest in modern art and founded the Beckers Art Award in 1987. Many recipients have gone on to earn widespread recognition, among them Dan Wolgers (1989), Jockum Nordström (1999), Linn Fernström (2000) and Nathalie Djurberg (2006).
The selected artist receives SEK 200,000 and a solo exhibition at Färgfabriken. Members of the jury are Jenny Lindén Urnes, Mårten Castenfors and Magnus Jensner.
Petra Hultman is the current holder of the Beckers Art Award. She received the award for "her ability to visually and personally, no matter the technique, reach out to us viewers in an intelligent and sensitive artistic expression, which testifies of larger and more important issues".
