Moving Image Commission 

The Great North Run Moving Image Commission, organised by Great North Run Culture, awards an experienced artist or filmmaker £30,000 to create a new work which responds to and captures the spirit of one of the world’s top sporting events. The new work is premiered in the North East in September ever year as part of our Great North Run Culture programme, with an extract screened on the BBC during their live coverage of the Run.
It all started in 2005, when Great North Run Culture was established as a celebration of 25 years of the Great North Run. Great North Run Culture is an annual programme of commissions, events and projects that celebrate sport and art, all set against the backdrop of the world’s largest half-marathon.
Our first programme featured the film Broken Time by Jane and Louise Wilson. As part of the legacy of this film and an ongoing commitment to exploring the relationship between sport and art, the annual Great North Run Moving Image Commission was established.
