About Piket Kunstprijzen

Since 2014, the Piket Art Prizes have been awarded to young artists who have a connection with The Hague, because they have developed there or because their work makes a stimulating contribution to the cultural climate in The Hague. Namesake Frederik Hendrik Piket (1927-2011), lawyer and member of the Senate for the CHU (later CDA), was a great lover of art and culture. After his death, a foundation was established that aims to encourage three promising, professional artists under the age of 30 with a prize every year.
