Entries are invited for the Ivan Juritz Prize for Creative Experiment 2020!

We are delighted to announce that entries for the 2020 prize are now open, and we are accepting submissions in each of the following 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, image, 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 2019 Ivan Juritz Prize is judged by Arlene Sierra, Richard Scott, Josephine Pryde, and Will Eaves.

The closing date is 27 March 2020. Please see rules and entry for further details.
