The entry window for the Ivan Juritz Prize for Creative Experiment 2021 has now closed.

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 each, and we will seek their involvement in future artistic collaborations with Cove Park.

All shortlisted works will be showcased at the digital prize-giving and written up in the journal Textual Practice. The 2021 Ivan Juritz Prize is judged by Arlene Sierra, Richard Scott, Josephine Pryde, and Will Eaves.

Shortlisted works have now been announced – head to the shortlist tab to discover this year’s works. Winners will be announced at the digital prize-giving on the 23rd of June.
