Rijksmuseum's Rijksstudio is celebrating its first anniversary. Therefore, the Rijksmuseum is organising the competition 'Make your own Masterpiece'. The best design wins the Rijksstudio Award.
It is no longer possible to send in your design for the Rijksstudio Award. Mid March we will publish the ten best designs on this page. The winner will be announced during the award presentation at the Rijksmuseum on 1 April 2014.
Rijksstudio Award – Make your own Masterpiece
The Rijksmuseum's Rijksstudio is one year old. More than 100,000 people already have their own Rijksstudio on our award-winning website, something we're very proud of. We're even more proud of all the amazing creations that users have made based on our collection, and we want to showcase the most beautiful and surprising of these to the public at large and put them on display them in the Rijksmuseum atelier. What's more, we'd also like to include them in our shops if possible. As such, the Rijksmuseum is organising the competition Make your own Masterpiece… The best design wins the Rijksstudio Award.
The winner of the Rijksstudio Award will be the best design created using Rijksstudio, i.e. one that is inspired by the Rijksmuseum's collection. Every conceivable form of art is allowed (design, fine art, applied art, photography, video). And anyone can enter.
Shortlist of the top ten
The ten best designs will be nominated for the 2014 Rijksstudio Award and will be on show from April 17. A panel of international experts will judge the designs. The nominated designs will be exhibited in the Teekenschool (Drawing School), the educational heart of the Rijksmuseum.
