The Jerwood Drawing Prize is the largest and longest running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK.
The exhibition provides a platform to showcase the work of drawing practitioners, and helps to define a wider understanding of the role and value of drawing in creative practice. This year, works by 65 artists have been selected from 2,811 submissions from across the UK. The Jerwood Drawing Prize is a joint initiative, led by Professor Anita Taylor at Bath Spa University, and supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation through Jerwood Visual Arts. The Evelyn Williams Drawing Award is funded by the Evelyn Williams Trust working in association with the Jerwood Drawing Prize, with this year’s award winner’s solo exhibition hosted in 2018 by the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings.
