The jury, chaired by Xandra Schutte (chief editor De Groene Amsterdammer), will announce the winners on Monday 26 November.

Three bachelor projects and five master projects were nominated based on 33 entries: 



How do you compare choreography with an architectural design, or a heritage thesis with a mime performance? The jury are faced with a difficult task each year. Important criteria upon which the jury evaluates the entries, in addition to them having been assessed as very good, include the way in which a connection is made with the outside world in the graduation project, and the relevance of the work for the further development of the profession. The jury also takes into account the difference in level between Bachelor’s and Master’s graduation projects.

On 26 November, the jury will announce the winners during a festive ceremony. Also the winner of the audience award (whose content remains a surprise until the ceremony) will be announced. Everyone is welcome to attend this event.
