Jerwood Drawing Prize Winner Announced

LONDON, ENGLAND.- Wimbledon School of Art, the Jerwood Charitable Foundation and the University of Gloucestershire are delighted to announce the winners of The Jerwood Drawing Prize 2003: 1st Prize (£5,000) - Paul Brandford (Snatch); 2nd Prize (£3,000) - Jeanette Barnes (Inside Canary Wharf DLR Station); 3rd Prize (£2,000) - Bryan Biggs (Entitled: Liverpool Portfolio of Measured Drawings); Student Awards (£500) - Caroline Edwards (Creeping Bruise); Joshua W. F. Thomson (The Age of Reason 1 – On Loan from the Institute of Ape Culture). The prizes will be announced this evening at an award ceremony in London by Mary Doyle, Co-Founder and Curator of The Drawing Room.

Selecting a winner from over 2400 entries submitted this year has been a challenging task for the expert panel of judges – Ken Currie (Artist), William Feaver (Art Critic, Writer and Broadcaster) and Anita Taylor (Artist, Educator and Director of The Jerwood Drawing Prize). William Feaver said of the experience, “Gradually, as day one of the selection process blurred into day two, certain drawings began to assert themselves, some large, some tellingly modest in size, all describable as (abused word though it is) poetic. Truly poetic. Eventually we came to decide on the winners, all excellent in a field of wide achievement, all alive with ideas, sensations, information.”

As the UK’s largest annual open drawing competition of its calibre, The Jerwood Drawing Prize has attracted entries from throughout the UK from both professional, non-professional and student artists. “The Drawing Prize is a unique venture for Wimbledon School of Art, the Jerwood Charitable Foundation and the University of Gloucestershire”, said Karen Bateson, Jerwood Drawing Co-Ordinator at Wimbledon School of Art. “It is the longest running and largest exhibition of drawing in the UK, and provides a significant contribution in promoting awareness of the discipline within contemporary visual arts practice. This third year of substantial funding by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation has ensured the continuation of a prestigious exhibition of contemporary drawing of international stature.”

The exhibition is open to the public in London until 12th October 2003. It will then tour to Cheltenham, Glasgow, Hull and Manchester.

The Jerwood Drawing Prize is the largest annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK and aims to promote and reward excellence and talent in contemporary drawing practice.

The competition, initiated by the Malvern Drawing Associates in 1991, moved to Cheltenham in 1994 and to London in 2003. The Jerwood Charitable Foundation has been the principal benefactor since 2001. The project has grown considerably in stature and support since its inception and currently receives over two thousand submissions on an annual basis. The administrative centre for the exhibition relocated to Wimbledon School of Art in March 2003.
