The Jarman Award recognises and supports artists working with moving image and celebrates the spirit of experimentation, imagination and innovation in the work of emerging artist filmmakers.

The annual Award is inspired by visionary filmmaker Derek Jarman and presented by Film London in association with Channel 4 and the Whitechapel Gallery. Any mid-career artist filmmaker whose work embraces the spirit and the legacy of Jarman’s highly experimental and risk-taking approach can be put forward.

The winner receives £10,000 prize money.

See the shortlisted artists for 2020 below. The Award will be announced in November.

Past winners of the award are Hetain Patel [2019], Daria Martin [2018], Oreet Ashery (2017), Heather Phillipson (2016), Seamus Harahan (2015)  Ursula Mayer (2014), John Smith (2013), James Richards (2012), Anya Kirschner & David Panos (2011), Emily Wardill (2010), Lindsay Seers (2009) and Luke Fowler (2008).
