In 2020 the Film London Jarman Award was split between all six shortlisted artists, a first in the Award’s history. Each artist received an equal share of the £12,000 prize money.

The decision to split the prize money was a collaborative decision between the six shortlisted artists, Film London and the Jury for the 2020 Jarman Award. It reflects the solidarity of the artistic and creative community in the face of challenging economic conditions resulting from the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The artists shortlisted for the Jarman Award 2020 were: 

Michelle Williams Gamaker

Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings

Jenn Nkiru
