The museum's selection committee is in charge of identifying the artists who are to be awarded an official certificate. All artists (finalists and otherwise) whose applications stand out in the eyes of the committee will receive a personalized certificate of artistic merit for the respective year. Not all artists are ensured this certificate.
Each year, the new certificate is available for download from your online candidate area starting December 1st.
To download your certificate for a particular year, click on the crown corresponding to your year of participation in your candidate area. Example of a screen showing several years of participation:
As long as the current edition of the Luxembourg Art Prize has not ended, the certificate of participation cannot be downloaded. This is why, in the screenshot below, we cannot click on the crown to start a download:
In this example, we must wait until December 1st of the year in question to be able to download the certificate for this edition.
Out of respect for the environment (i.e. the planet and trees), the official certificates are only available as downloadable PDFs. These documents are 100% legitimate and signed digitally in a forgery-proof manner. As a result, the museum does not send printed certificates by regular mail.
Electronic certificates are issued in high definition so they can be printed with the quality of an original.
