CALL FOR ENTRIES: Jerwood/FVU Awards 2022

The Jerwood/FVU Awards 2022 returns to a biennial model following five annual editions, allowing artists a longer production period to fulfil the ambition of their proposals.

The commissioned works will launch outside of London for the first time, with the premiere taking place at the prestigious Leeds Art Gallery in January 2022, before travelling to Jerwood Arts, London in April 2022. This new partnership with Leeds Art Gallery represents an exciting new chapter for the Awards, providing awarded artists opportunities to connect with audiences across Yorkshire, alongside a programme of events and outreach work promoting deepened relationships with Yorkshire-based artists.

Applications for the Jerwood/FVU Awards 2022 have now closed. If you have applied, you can expect to hear back from us by 14 October 2020
