Jerwood Award call for applications

, 18 January 2016

Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards are accepting applications until March 11.

The theme of the fourth commission in the award’s history is Not One Thing or Another. The two successful applicants will receive £20,000 each to realise a new film work, which will later be exhibited at London’s Jerwood Space in 2017.

The theme addresses ambiguity, not belonging fully to one single thing, being in between states. It also invites artists to think about video as a medium, about the nature of projection, resolution, focussing and hovering.

Previous winners of the award are Marianna SimnettAlice May Williams, Ed Atkins and Naheed Raza.
