The Jarman Award 2015

The 2015 edition of the Jarman Award has been launched with the issue of invitations to nominate to over 300 curators, commissioners, producers and experts from across the country.

This year's shortlist selected from the nominated artists by a jury panel will be announced in June. The national tour of the shortlisted artist's works will take place throughout the autumn and will culminate with a weekend of events at the Whitechapel Gallery in November. The touring programme will be screened at ten venues including CCA Glasgow, Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff, Plymouth Arts Centre and Towner, Eastbourne.

The award announcement will take place at the Whitechapel Gallery in November.

About the Jarman Award

Celebrating the spirit of experimentation, imagination and innovation in the work of UK artist filmmakers, the Jarman Award recognises individual artist filmmakers whose risk-taking work resists boundaries and conventional definition - work that encompasses innovation, excellence and vision. 

The purpose of the award is open-ended - an investment in the career of an individual enabling a period of experimentation without pressure. The award shines a light on artist film-makers who are to our times what Jarman was to his.

Any mid-career artist film-maker whose work embraces the spirit and the legacy of Jarman's highly experimental and risk-taking approach can be put forward for this annual prize.

The winner of the annual award will receive a cash prize of £10,000. Channel 4 also supports the award with a slate of short film commissions for its Random Acts arts strand.
