David Fennessy receives Paul Hamlyn Award 2010
Prize Ceremony on 10 November
This year's Paul Hamlyn Foundation Awards for Artists recipients were announced on Wednesday 10 November at a reception in London.
Three composers and five visual artists were selected to receive the £45,000 prize to support them at critical moments of their careers and enable their artistic development. This year's selected visual artists are Angela de la Cruz, Luke Fowler, Christina Mackie, Ben Rivers and Lindsay Seers. The composers are Anna Meredith, Jason Yarde and David Fennessy.
Since the first Awards for Artists in 1994, the scheme has supported over 90 individuals with total funding in excess of £3 million. Awards carry no obligations and are intended to allow recipients to work unhindered by financial constraint. They are made according to talent, promise and need.
David Fennessy's This is how it feels (Another Bolero) for orchestra is published by Universal Edition.
