This trophy is shaped like a cylinder, as a symbol for a prize handed out. The cylinder is made of copper, a material used in the beer brewing industry, and the medals at both ends of the cylinder are made of silver. The jury report can be kept inside the cylinder, whereby it essentially becomes a time capsule. The prize was designed and produced by Eelco Veenman.

The Dr A.H. Heineken Prize for Art honours the outstanding achievements of remarkable artists, creates space for reflection and, hopefully, brings inspiration for new work and ideas. It consists of a monetary award of 50,000 euros, another 50,000 euros to fund the publication of a book and/or the organisation of an exhibition, and a trophy. The prize was established in 1988 and is awarded every two years. It is funded by the Dr A.H. Heineken Foundation for Art.
