Rijksstudio Award 2015

The Dutch Rijksmuseum is one of the pioneers when it comes to sharing open cultural heritage data online. Since 2011, they have been releasing high-quality images of the artworks in their collection (including famous paintings by Rembrandt and Vermeer) through Rijksstudio: currently there are 200.000 works available that users can share, download and reuse to make their own artworks.

Following a successful competiton last year, the Rijksmuseum is now organising the second round of the Rijksstudio Award Make your own Masterpiece, inviting everyone to create a design using Rijksstudio. Every form of art is allowed – design, fine art, applied art, photography, video – and the ten winners will be exhibited in the Rijksmuseum. The deadline for entries is 15 March 2015: more information is available from this page.

If you are looking for inspiration to enter the competition, check out the video below or the winners of last year’s round!
