Helen Charman shortlisted for Ivan Juritz Prize 2019

Ivan Juritz Prize Shortlist 2019

We are delighted to announce the shortlist for the Ivan Juritz Prize 2019.

With a huge increase in entries this year, most of an extremely high standard, the judges’ decision was particularly difficult. We are very proud of the shortlist and excited that winners from all three categories will go to Cove Park in September to collaborate on making a new work of art.

Helen Charman, PhD English Literature, Trinity Hall Cambridge.
