The Tukan Prize of the City of Munich is awarded annually for the linguistically, formally and content-wise outstanding literary new publication by a Munich author . It is endowed with 6,000 euros.

In several sessions, a jury selects from all new fiction publications by Munich authors. It consists of six specialist jurors and five members of the Munich City Council . The award is made in cooperation with the Tukan Circle .

The Tukan Prize was founded in 1965 by the state capital of Munich at the suggestion of Rudolf Schmitt-Sulzthal , the founder and then head of the Tukan Circle. From 1967 to 1991, the Tukan Prize was awarded every two years to three to six authors for a literary work eligible for funding. The Tukan Prize has been awarded annually since the guidelines for awarding the award were amended in 1991; however, only one book will be awarded.
