Lux and Lux Scotland are inviting UK-based artists to participate in a survey that aims to uncover the current state of artists’ moving image practice in the UK.

The 10 minute-long online questionnaire follows on from Lux’s last survey that took place two years ago and aims to find out what has changed for artists during this period.

The survey is broken down into six sections – Finances, Production, Exhibition and Distribution, Networks, About You and About Lux / Lux Scotland – which seek to understand artists’ income levels, the relationship between commission fees and days worked, how artists show their work, and what technical constraints or production needs they may have.

The closing date for the survey is 14 April 2017 and artists who take part can choose to be entered into a prize draw to win an Apple iPad Mini 2.

Lux state that all information from the survey will be used anonymously to advocate to funders for artists’ moving image practice and to help Lux, Lux Scotland, and similar organisations ‘to better understand and serve artists’ needs.’
