Since 1999, the Gesellschaft für Goldschmiedekunst e.V. has been commemorating the outstanding goldsmith and designer of kinetic objects, Professor Friedrich Becker (1922-1997), by awarding the Friedrich Becker Prize, endowed with 10,000 euros, funded by the foundation of Hildegard Becker (1928-2018) in Düsseldorf. The Friedrich Becker Prize Düsseldorf is awarded every three years for outstanding independent design of the highest quality of execution. 129 artists from 21 countries competed for the Friedrich Becker Prize 2023 with jewellery and small objects.
