Aligned with Jerwood’s commitment to emerging and early-career artists and its mission to support, nurture and reward excellence and dedication in the arts, this new partnership between Jerwood Foundation and the London Original Print Fair in developing two Print Prizes presented an exciting opportunity to recognise artists who are excelling as innovative print-makers.
