BACKGROUND


Launched in 2010, Jerwood Makers Open has been developed to create a space in which to recognise and celebrate the significance of making practice and process within contemporary visual arts. This initiative offers makers at the early stages of their careers an opportunity to develop their creative ideas independently of specific commissioning structures.

Jerwood Visual Arts, developed and managed by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, is committed to supporting and promoting contemporary applied arts practice. The Jerwood Applied Arts Prize ran for 11 years (1999-2007) in pertnership with the Crafts Council. This was followed from 2008 to 2010 by Jerwood Contemporary Makers, a nominated exhibition series which provided a platform to show new and emergent work in the field of making.

SELECTION PROCESS

 
In considering proposals, the selectors will be invited to debate as a panel what they consider to be outstanding, interesting practice in the applied arts and to explore this through their selection. They will also consider how this particular opportunity would support potential positive developments to individual makers practice and profile.

The selectors will consider all proposals, and from this will select a shortlist of makers who will be invited to be interviewed by the selectors. Applicants will be notified of interviews by 18 November 2011, and interviews will take place on one day the week commencing 28 November 2011 at Jerwood Space, London SE1 OLN. Five awards will then be made and makers will be notified by  2 December 2011 if they have been successful. Comments from the selection panel at the first round stage will be passed on to those short listed for interview only. Those short listed for interview will be asked to consider the selection panels comments before the interview stage, and be prepared to answer the panels comments or queries at the interview.
