The Jerwood/Photoworks Awards is a major commissioning opportunity supporting early-career artists working with photography to make new work and significantly develop their practice. They particularly seek to encourage artists exploring new approaches to photography.
Now in their fourth edition, the Awards are for UK-based artists who are between one and ten years into their practice to realise ambitious new works for a national touring exhibition.
Two artists will receive a £15,000 award each with a full package of support from Jerwood Arts and Photoworks to create new work over a 12-month period. This includes:
£10,000 artist fee
£5,000 production budget
Access to a £5,000 printing budget from print partner Spectrum Photographic
Mentoring support from a high-profile international pool of experts for at least 12-months
Curatorial support from Jerwood Arts and Photoworks
A two-person exhibition in London as part of the Jerwood Arts programme at Jerwood Space (from October 2022)
A UK touring exhibition
The full value of each award package is £32,000
The Awards are a collaboration between Jerwood Arts and Photoworks, supported by Spectrum Photographic. Previous recipients have included Silvia Rosi, Theo Simpson, Alejandra Carles-Tolra, Sam Laughlin, Lua Ribeira, Matthew Finn, Joanna Piotrowska and Tereza Zelenkova.
