A major commissioning initiative for early career moving-image artists, in partnership with Film and Video Umbrella.
The Jerwood/FVU Awards are a major annual commission opportunity for moving-image artists within five years of beginning their practice, and were launched in 2010. They support early career moving-image artists and focus on practical, developmental support where the nurturing of ideas and expertise is consolidated by substantial production opportunities. They are selected by a specialist panel through a national open call in response to a changing curatorial theme. Two artists each receive £20,000, and full production support from FVU over a 10-month period, as well as access to the extensive moving-image facilities of University of East London, School of Arts and Digital Industries, to make significant new works for a national touring exhibition.
