Annual prize 2008-2011
The Jerwood Foundation established the Jerwood Prize for Traditional Arts in 2008 as an annual award granted to one student at the Prince's School of Traditional Arts to recognise exceptional work and talent in the field of traditional arts and craftsmanship. Students from the School's degree course compete for the Prize, now worth £2,500, which was presented by HRH The Prince of Wales to Hana Hijazi in 2008, Sara Salman in 2009, Ghulam Hyder Daupota in 2010 and Farkhondeh Ahmadzadeh in 2011.
The Prince's School of Traditional Arts
The Prince's School was founded in 2005 by the Prince of Wales as part of The Prince's Charities group, with the aim 'to continue the living traditions of the world's sacred and traditional art forms'. Based in the fashionable and artistic area of Shoreditch, an average of 25 students work permanently on site, numbers increasing with students studying PhDs and open courses.
