Entries are invited for the Ivan Juritz Prize for Creative Experiment 2021!

We are delighted to announce that entries for the 2021 prize are now open, and we are accepting submissions in three categories – Text, Sound and Visual Arts. A winner from each category will be awarded £1,000 and a residency at Cove Park.

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’. Postgraduate students throughout Europe either from traditional academic disciplines or from creative courses are invited to submit texts, films, musical compositions, virtual documentation of artwork, excerpts of moving image work and proposals for installation and performance. Entrants are encouraged to play with form to make us think, feel and question.

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, Sound, and Visual Arts) receive £1,000 and spend a two-week residency at Cove Park.

All shortlisted works are given a public performance at the prize-giving and are written up in the journal Textual Practice. The 2021 Ivan Juritz Prize is judged by Arlene Sierra, Richard Scott, Josephine Pryde, and Will Eaves.

The closing date is 26 March 2021. Please see rules and entry for further details.
