Winners of Jerwood Film and Video Umbrella Awards Announced

Wednesday, 4 April, 2012

Film and Video Umbrella and Jerwood Visual Arts have announced that Ed Atkins and Naheed Raza have been chosen to receive commissions of £20,000 each in the next phase of the new Jerwood/Film and Video Umbrella Awards. Chosen from four shortlisted artists, both will now work with Film and Video Umbrella on major new moving image projects, which will premiere at Jerwood Visual Arts, London in 2013, before opening in Glasgow at CCA (Centre for Contemporary Art).

This significant new opportunity for moving image artists has so far supported four of the most exciting new talents to emerge on the contemporary art scene, providing each with a development fund and exhibition opportunity. Those shortlisted artists -Ed Atkins, Emma Hart, Naheed Raza and Corin Sworn – were selected by a panel of judges from a nominated long-list of more than 50 proposals from across the UK. Each artist was awarded a bursary of £4,000 to develop pre-production proposals which are currently on show in the group exhibition Tomorrow Never Knows at JVA at Jerwood Space, London, until 22 April 2012.
