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 ninth 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 28 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.

With events taking place in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, the tour offers audiences the chance to see a programme of new and recent single screen works, and hear from the artists in person. The tour will take place from 2 October until 20 November 2016, visiting 11 venues around the UK.
