Unintended Consequences: Jerwood/FVU Awards
Deadline 4 April
The Jerwood/FVU Awards are a major annual opportunity for moving-image artists in the first five years of their practice. The open application programme invites artists to make proposals for ambitious new works, two of which are selected each year, by a panel of experts. The selected artists will each be given a £20,000 award to create the proposed work over a 10-month period. Each recipient will also receive full production support from FVU, as well as access to the extensive moving-image facilities of University of East London, School of Arts and Digital Industries. Finished works will be exhibited at Jerwood Space, London, before touring nationally.
A distinguishing feature of the Awards is their prominent curatorial theme, which changes each year. Timely, but always future facing, this theme provides a framework that applicants are invited to respond to, lending the project a wider contemporary resonance.
