Opportunity: Jerwood/ Photoworks Awards open for entries

The call for entries for the third national Jerwood/Photoworks Awards is now open with the competition searching for proposals from outstanding artists using new approaches to photography.

The Jerwood/Photoworks Awards support photographers, or artists using photography, to make new work and significantly develop their practice. The awards are a collaboration between Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Photoworks, supported by Official Print Partner Spectrum Photographic.

Presented every two years, the awards are open to arts practitioners using photography who are within ten years of establishing their practice. There is no age limitation and no requirement for formal education or qualifications and, in recognition of the financial pressures faced by many artists, this edition will not require an application fee.

Applicants are also welcome to submit a video or audio proposal and funding to help those facing additional barriers to take up the opportunity is also available.

The prizes
Two awardees will each receive:
• £10,000 to support the making of new work
• Access to an additional production fund of £5,000
• High-profile mentoring support from an international panel of experts for at least 12 months
• A two-person exhibition in London as part of the Jerwood Visual Arts programme at Jerwood Space (from January 2020)
• A subsequent UK joint exhibition tour

Alongside the extensive mentoring programme offered to the two awardees, shortlisted artists will be invited to undertake mentoring with the Photoworks team of expert curators and arts professionals.

The call for entries is open now and will close at 5pm on Monday 5 November 2018.
