The final showing of Jerwood Drawing Prize 2017 will be at Drawing Projects UK and open to the public from 16 August to 6 October 2018. Selected by Dr David Dibosa, Helen Legg and Michael Simpson from over 2,800 original drawings, 69 drawings by 65 artists will be on display. Founded in 1994, it is the largest and longest-running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK and was supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation from 2001 to 2017.

Selected from original drawings, the Jerwood Drawing Prize has established a reputation for its commitment to championing excellence, and to promoting and celebrating the breadth of contemporary drawing practice. The exhibition provides a platform to showcase the work of UK-based drawing practitioners, from student to established, and as a project helps to define a wider understanding of the role and value of drawing in creative practice.

The exhibiting artists are: David Ainley, Elisa Alaluusua, Pam Aldridge, Becky Allen, Kate Aspinall, Adam Bainbridge, Andy Bannister, Helen Barff, Dail Behennah, Kelly Best, Kate Black, Alice Blackstock, Abigail Booth, Becky Brewis, Lucinda Burgess, Eric Butcher, Stephen Carter, Ian Chamberlain, Lewis Chamberlain, Dean Claydon, Susannah Douglas, Dickon Drury, Richard Ducker, Jim Dunkley, James Fowkes, Nigel Frost, Christopher Fry, Lesley Hicks, Jim Hobbs, Marianne Holm Hansen, Caroline Holt-Wilson, Susie Howarth, Ronnie Hughes, Jeremy Hutchison, Julia Hutton, Jonathan Huxley, Alexander Johnson, Ben Johnson, Will Kippax, Jason Lane, Gary Lawrence, Carali McCall, Grace McMurray, Tahira Mandarino, Ana Mendes, Jasone Miranda-Bilbao, Jade Montserrat, Dejan Mrdja, David Murphy, Susan Petticrew, Helen Rawlinson, Giulia Ricci, Fiona G Roberts, Caragh Savage, Carly Seller, Tom Sewell, Laurie Steen, Rebecca Swindell, David Symonds, Sally Taylor, Ben Wade, Barbara Walker, Eleanor Wood, Sally Wood, and Andrea V Wright.

The prestigious first prize of £8,000 was awarded to Gary Lawrence for his monumental drawing Yellow Kalymnos and Fridge Magnets. Ana Mendes was the recipient of the £5000 second prize for her video work, On Drawing. Two Student Awards of £2000 each were awarded to Jade Montserrat and Dejan Mrdja respectively. A new biennial award was made in 2017, with Barbara Walker the first recipient of the newly introduced Evelyn Williams Drawing Award, worth £10,000. Barbara Walker's solo exhibition will be at Jerwood Gallery in Hastings from 19 October 2018 to 6 January 2019, and will include works borrowed from The National Gallery in London supported through the Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund.

The next iteration of the annual open drawing exhibition, with a new sponsor - the Trinity Buoy wahrf Drawing Prize 2018 - will lauch at Trinity Buoy Wharf in London in September 2018.
