AMSTERDAM.- Today the Rijksmuseum announces its ten finalists for the Rijksstudio Award. An international jury selected the ten best designs from a total of 810 entries for the 'Make your own Masterpiece' competition, in which applicants were challenged to create their own masterpiece based on an image from the museum’s collection in Rijksstudio. The entries were extremely diverse, from a perfume to a music video and from jewelry to paintings. The three winners will be announced on the evening of Tuesday 1 April, during the festive Rijksstudio Award presentation ceremony.

The ten finalists and their entries are featured on the Rijksmuseum’s website:

Taco Dibbits, Director of Collections: ‘The number, diversity and level of entries from all over the world was surprising. Wonderful to see how the Rijksmuseum collection is a source of inspiration.’

Design competition: Make your own Masterpiece
The Make your own Masterpiece design competition was established on 1 November 2013 to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Rijksstudio. People were invited to participate in any conceivable art form (design, autonomous art, applied arts, photography, video), as long as their creation was inspired by an item in the Rijksmuseum’s collection. The designs were judged by an international jury: Caroline Baumann, Director Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, Tony Chambers, Editor-in-Chief at Wallpaper, Irma Boom, Designer at Irma Boom Office, Renny Ramakers, Co-founder of and Creative Director at Droog, Caroline Krouwels, Head of Creative De Bijenkorf en Taco Dibbits, Director of Collections at the Rijksmuseum. The winner will receive the Rijksstudio Award and their design will be exhibited in the Rijksmuseum.
