The Jerwood/FVU Awards – Call for Entries

The Jerwood/FVU Awards are a major opportunity for moving-image artists in the first five years of their practice, a collaboration between Jerwood Arts and Film and Video Umbrella in partnership with Leeds Art Gallery.

Early-career artists are invited to make proposals for ambitious new works in any form of the moving-image. The scheme is looking for original and achievable proposals for a new moving-image work that will represent a step-change in the applicant’s practice.

The two awarded artists will receive £25,000 each, comprising a £6,000 artist fee and £19,000 production budget to create the proposed moving-image artwork. Proposals must demonstrate clear thinking about how the project may need to be adapted due to circumstances and restrictions to activities in relation to coronavirus (COVID-19).

Applications close on at 1pm, 20 July 2020. For further information please see
