The 2022 prize competition is now open. Entries can be submitted until 31 March 2022.

The Ivan Juritz Prize is delighted to announce a new partnership with Mahler & LeWitt Studios in Spoleto, Italy, where all prize winners will be invited for a two-week artist residency (with travel expenses paid).

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 Mahler & LeWitt Studios in Spoleto, Italy. Winners in three categories (Text, Sound, and Visual Arts) receive £1,000 each. Moreover, they will be invited to a joint two-week artist residency at Mahler & LeWitt Studios, which offers a unique environment for developing new ideas and artistic collaborations.

All shortlisted works will be showcased at the prize-giving ceremony at King’s College London in June 2022 and written up in the journal Textual Practice.
