Two UK exhibition projects awarded with £50,000 prize.

The inaugural This Way Up: Exhibition Innovation conference at the Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle closed yesterday with the announcement of the pitch winners.

The panel, which considered three pitches, has awarded the Exhibition Innovation Fund prize of £50,000 to two projects: Move It, led by Animate Projects and the Centre for the Moving Image, and Edinburgh and Av Festival’s major site-specific installation DS30 by Test Dept.

Move it is a ‘networked’ season of British and international animation covering a breadth of film and art practice, from Aa to Aa (Aardman to Artists’ moving image).

Premiered in March 2014, DS30 is a political collage of sound and image featuring archive film footage from the 1984/85 miners’ strike.

The first-ever Exhibition Innovation Fund was pitched live to conference delegates and considered by industry panel members. The panel was comprised of Shona Thomson, producer Hippodrome Festival of Silent Cinema; Sarah-Jane Meredith of UK Wide Audiences »
