The Jerwood Drawing Prize is the largest and longest running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK. Judged by an independent panel of selectors, the Prize aims to recognise and support all UK based artists, from student to established, working in the field of drawing.

The shortlist includes established artists as well as relative newcomers and students fresh from art school.

The Jerwood Drawing Prize was established in 1996 as the annual Cheltenham Open Drawing Exhibition. It was renamed the Jerwood Drawing Prize when the Jerwood Charitable Foundation became the principal sponsor in 2001. The Jerwood Drawing Prize is part of Jerwood Visual Arts and is run in partnership with Drawing Projects UK.

Jerwood Visual Arts (JVA) is a contemporary gallery programme of awards, exhibitions and events at Jerwood Space, London and on tour nationally. JVA promotes and celebrates the work of talented emerging artists across the disciplines of drawing, painting, sculpture, applied arts, photography and moving image. A major initiative of the Jerwood Charitable Foundation.

The Jerwood Charitable Foundation is dedicated to imaginative and responsible revenue funding of the arts, supporting emerging artists to develop and grow at important stages in their careers. The aim of their funding is to allow artists and arts organisations to thrive; to continue to develop their skills, imagination and creativity with integrity. They work with artists across art forms, from dance and theatre to literature, music and the visual arts.

Drawing Projects UK was established in 2009 by Anita Taylor, Co-Founder of the Jerwood Drawing Prize (originally Cheltenham Open Drawing Exhibition) and Director of the National Art School, Syndney.
