The Stuart Croft Foundation enables artists, filmmakers, researchers, and exhibitors working in and between the gallery and the cinema to undertake and complete small-scale projects, where other funding options may be difficult to obtain.
Launched in March 2017 to support the production and dissemination of new moving image works, the award scheme offers three distinct funding awards – The Moving Image Award, The Research Award and The Education Award.
Recipients of the 2018 awards are Lucy Pawlak – Holding (Moving Image Award, £5000), Adam Roberts – Retrospect: residue, trace, absence (Research Award, £3000) and Jennifer Martin – Teeth (Education Award, £2000).

The 2017 award recipients were Frances Scott – Its soil was a plot she do the tree in different voices (Moving Image), Erik Martinson – Its origins are indeterminate (Special Projects Award), and Sam Williams – the actual structure is the material (Education Award).

Applications for the awards are currently closed.
We’re currently reviewing the awards, but we will be announcing a new round later this year. Please sign up to our newsletter for updates about awards activity.
The Moving Image
The Moving Image Award supports moving image artists and filmmakers to test new ideas and take risks with both form and content. Applicants are particularly encouraged to experiment with narrative.
2018 Moving Image Award:
The Research Award enables curators, writers and researchers to realise innovate projects that directly encounter the archive of Stuart Croft, making original contributions to the public access and discourse surrounding the artist’s work.
2018 Research Award:
Retrospect: residue, trace, absence
The Education Award provides grants to support postgraduate students (MA and Doctoral research candidates) and those within their first year of graduating to conduct specific aspects of their film practice.
