The Jarman Award
The Film London Jarman Award recognises and supports artists working with moving image and celebrates the spirit of experimentation, imagination and innovation in the work of emerging artist filmmakers. The Award is inspired by visionary filmmaker Derek Jarman.
Now in its eight year, the Award has a reputation for spotting rising stars of the UK art world. Previously shortlisted artists include Duncan Campbell, Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Luke Fowler, Elizabeth Price and Laure Prouvost, all of whom went on to be shortlisted for or win the Turner Prize.
The Award will be announced at the Whitechapel Gallery on Monday 30 November in a special ceremony where they will receive £10,000 prize money and support from Channel 4 to produce a new film for their Random Acts arts strand.
Launching alongside this year's Jarman Award is The Jules Wright Prize for Female Creative Technicians, a new award for UK-based female creative technicians who have played a significant role in the area of artists' moving image production.
This year there is a more focussed shortlist of six artist filmmakers, which shows the breadth of practice within contemporary artists' moving image. For the first time, the selected artists represent all corners of the UK including Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
The shortlisted artists are:
