Ivan Juritz Prize

 Ivan Juritz Prize
Summary:Residency Opportunity
Deadline: 29 March 2019
Date Posted: 31 October 2018
Details: We are delighted to announce that the 2019 prize is now open. The prize has expanded so now there will be a winner for each category: text, image, sound. The three winners will each receive £1000 and a residency at Cove Park.

This year’s deadline is 29 March 2019 and the prize is judged by Rachel Cusk, Jeremy Harding, Gillian Wearing and Ryan Wigglesworth.

Entrants must be postgraduate students currently enrolled on a course or programme of study in a European country.

Entries must be accompanied by a statement (up to 150 words).

The prize is intended for artists who have yet to establish themselves, but work that has already been published or performed can be submitted.

Entrants are welcome to submit their work to multiple categories. If you chose to do this, please give the titles of all submissions clearly in your statements.

The winners will be both of their time and aware of debts to the past. Pound, calling on the modern artist to ‘make it new’, was, after all, creatively translating the ancient Chinese King Cheng Tang. In the accompanying 150 word statement you should analyse the role of experiment in your work and, if appropriate, relate your work, whether sympathetically or antagonistically, to the creative experimentation of the modernist era.
