Jerwood Drawing Prize

Online registration now closed

The largest and longest-running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK, presented in collaboration with Bath Spa University.

Jerwood Drawing Prize is an annual exhibition and cash prize opportunity for artists at all stages of their careers working with drawing, launched in 1994. It supports excellence and promotes and celebrates the breadth of contemporary drawing practice in the UK.  Drawings are selected for the exhibition by a panel of three selectors including an artist, a curator and a writer. The selection panel changes each year and the resulting exhibitions reflect each panel’s taxonomy of contemporary drawing practice. There are four cash prizes awarded each year with no stipulations as to use: First Prize of £8,000, Second Prize of £5,000 and two Student Awards of £2,000 each.

Selectors: Glenn Brown, artist; Stephanie Buck, Director of Kupferstich-Kabinett at Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden; and Paul Hobson, Director of Modern Art Oxford.

The Jerwood Drawing Prize is a joint initiative, led by Professor Anita Taylor, Dean of Bath School of Art and Design at Bath Spa University and supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
