Rijksstudio has been given a brand new interface and is now even simpler and more inspiring. In addition to your own work, your Rijksstudio account now contains the new All Rijksstudios stream, which includes other people’s collections and creations.
In the All Rijksstudios stream you can quickly find the topics that interest you. Take inspiration from other visitors to Rijksstudio. In addition to astonishing collections, you’ll discover the original creations and products that others have made from Rijksstudio images. Uploading your own creations to Rijksstudio is really easy. Hang your own works alongside the Rijksmuseum’s masterpieces, in the same virtual gallery!
In the stream (and on other pages), the Rijksmuseum spotlights the most dazzling collections, topics and creations. Everyone can enjoy the Rijksstudio creations that you’ve made.
2013: A great year for Rijksstudio
With more than 100,000 new participants and more than 500,000 free downloads, 2013 was a successful year for Rijksstudio. In October, Rijksstudio won the Dutch Design Award, the latest in a series of no fewer than nine prestigious national and international awards. No wonder the Rijksmuseum was named Interactive Company of the Year.
But that is not all, we are also announcing the Rijksstudio Award design competition. You have until 1 March 2014 to submit your own masterpiece for consideration. And in December, the Rijksmuseum API (Application Programming Interface) was launched. This is a state-of-the-art service that enables application developers to make use of Rijksmuseum content.
Rijksstudio brings the Rijksmuseum’s collection right to your door. Over 150,000 artworks are presented in close-up for you to zoom in on, to touch, to “Like”, and to use in your own creations. Collect your favourite works in your own Rijksstudio, share them with friends or download them free of charge and make your own artwork. The stunning images in Rijksstudio are entirely copyright-free: you can do what you like with them, for either private or commercial purposes. There are over 125,000 Rijksstudio's now.
