After 17 significant and successful years of support, Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Bath Spa University have announced that 2017 will be Jerwood Charitable Foundation’s final year as the key partner and funder for the Jerwood Drawing Prize. The project will, however, continue to be led and developed by Professor Anita Taylor with the support of Bath Spa University. The visual arts in the UK has benefitted enormously from the prestige of the Jerwood Drawing Prize. It has championed the careers of many emerging and established artists and this legacy will continue as the project moves forward into a new phase with new supporters. Jerwood Charitable Foundation supports early career artists and arts projects in the early stages of their development, and remains committed to supporting drawing as a fundamental element of artistic practice. We are incredibly proud to have been part of such a valued and important project and look forward to following the next steps of its journey.

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.
