Britain’s big contemporary art award might as well be called the Annual Apples and Oranges Prize. How should the judges choose between meticulous pencil drawings, documentary videos and a deliberately ragged mime show? But somehow they’ll have to, and tonight Jude Law announces who has won the £25,000 cheque.

Before that, a chance to sample the nominees: Paul Noble’s landscapes are engrossing and sweet; Spartacus Chetwynd’s prance-y performance-art pieces have annoyed and amused in equal measure; then take your pick from video works by Luke Fowler and Elizabeth Price about, respectively, psychiatrist RD Laing and a fire in a Manchester Woolworths.


Lauren Laverne hosts live coverage of the ceremony held at the Tate Britain in London, with actor Jude Law presenting the prize to the winning artist. Featuring profiles of nominees Paul Noble, Elizabeth Price, Luke Fowler and Spartacus Chetwynd, plus a debate on the night's proceedings with comedian Noel Fielding and critic Adrian Searle.
