The Ernst Hoferichter Prize (spelling: Ernst Hoferichter Prize ) is an award for Munich authors (also in the fields of cabaret , screenplay , journalism ) who combine “originality with open-mindedness and humor” in their works such as Ernst Hoferichter .

Since 1975, at the last will of Franzi Hoferichter, the writer's widow, the Ernst Hoferichter Foundation has awarded two prizes each year (from 2015 to 2018 only one prize) of 5000 euros each (as of 2020). The foundation's advisory board decides on the winners. In addition to the cultural advisor of Munich and the director of the Munich city library , it includes four literary friends of Hoferichter's or their designated successors. These are currently Wolfgang Görl , Brigitta Rambeck, Michael Skasa and Christian Ude .
