The Ivan Juritz 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. All shortlisted works are showcased at the prize-giving event and shortlisters will have the opportunity to write about their pieces for Textual Practice. Winners in three categories (text, image, sound) receive £1,000 and we will seek their involvement in future artistic collaborations with Cove Park.

We very much hope to see you on 23 June to celebrate some pleasurably bracing works of creative experiment!
