The Wilhelmina-ring is a bi-annual lifetime achievement award granted to a prominent Dutch sculptor. The price is initiated in 1998 by the Foundation Wilhelmina-ring to memorize that year Wilhelmina of the Netherlands was inaugurated as queen 100 years earlier.[1][2]

By awarding the prize the Foundation Wilhelmina-ring want to encourage the interest in Dutch sculpture. The prize consists of a specially designed ring, an exhibition at the CODA art center in Apeldoorn, and a commission by the municipality of Apeldoorn to produce an sculpture, to be placed in the Sprengen Park.
