The Ivan Juritz Prize was established in 2014 to celebrate the creative explosion of the modernist era and reward art that seeks to ‘make it new’.

The prize is a collaboration between the Centre for Modern Literature and Culture at King’s College London and Cove Park, Scotland’s International Artist Residency Centre. Winners in three categories (text, visual arts, sound) receive £1,000 and spend the first two weeks of September at Cove Park, engaging in a residency.

All shortlisted works are given a public performance at the prize-giving and are written up in the journal Textual Practice. The 2020 Ivan Juritz Prize is judged by Arlene Sierra, Richard Scott, Josephine Pryde, and Will Eaves.
