The Jerwood/FVU Awards are a major initiative for moving-image artists in the first five years of their practice. The fifth edition of the awards is called Unintended Consequences and is open to applicants 14 February – 4 April 2017.
Artists interested in submitting an application for the awards are invited to book a one-to-one appointment with Steven Bode, Director, FVU; or Sarah Williams, Head of Programme, Jerwood Visual Arts. Both are able to answer questions about the selection process, the curatorial theme, and general questions about the application form, as well as the commissioning, production and exhibition process and what will be required from you should you be successful with your application.
Sarah and Steven will not be able to read draft applications during these sessions, but are happy to comment on verbal summaries of proposed applications, as well as to answer specific questions in relation to them.
The Jerwood/FVU Awards are a collaboration between Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Film and Video Umbrella. For more information about Jerwood/FVU Awards 2018: Unintended Consequences please visit
These appointments are free to attend but places are very limited. Booking in advance is required; please email for information about the available slots. If you have a preference of whom you’d like to speak to please state this in your message.

Vessels and Vestiges is an exhibition of chemically unfixed photographic prints by Swansea-based artist, Ryan L. Moule.
Through the presentation of photographs in their unfixed state, Moule repositions the image away from its assumed signifier of certainty to one of uncertainty and fragility. Exposure of the light-sensitive paper is slowed down by their presentation under UV filtered box frames, which mimic the red-light environment of the photographic darkroom. This leaves them in a process of becoming, as the images continue to subtly transform over a prolonged period of time. Through the decision to not complete the traditional printing process, Moule aims to re-orientate focus away from the image as a form of representation, and onto its materiality.
