The Jarman Award

The Jarman Award 2014

The 2014 Jarman Award was presented to London-based artist Ursula Mayer.

Selected from a shortlist made up of some of the best artist filmmakers working today, the jury said that "it was the work of Ursula Mayer that came closest to touching on the language that Derek Jarman himself so often strived for."

As winner, the Austrian-born artist received a £10,000 cash prize and a commission for Channel 4’s short-form arts strand, Random Acts. Sebastian Buerkner, Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, and Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard were also awarded Random Acts commissions.
