Matthew Finn and Tereza Zelenkova discuss the development of their work enabled by the Jerwood/Photoworks Awards 2015, currently touring the UK and showing at Impressions Gallery until 19 March 2016, in conversation with Celia Davies, Photoworks Director.

The first national Jerwood/Photoworks Awards recognise outstanding future photographic talent. The awards have enabled three artists, Matthew Finn, Joanna Piotrowska, and Tereza Zelenkova, to develop their practice and create new work.

The Jerwood/Photoworks Awards 2015 

The Jerwood/Photoworks Awards are a biennial research and development opportunity supporting three talented individuals working with photography to create new work. They offer a £5,000 bursary with access to a production fund and a pool of international mentors, plus a subsequent national touring group exhibition. The Awards are a collaboration between Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Photoworks, supported by Arts Council England.
