We provide a $500 USD grant to one visual artist each grant cycle.
The deadline for the current grant cycle is April 15, 2019. There are four grant cycles per year – January 15, April 15, July 15, and October 15. If you are interested in receiving reminder notifications for deadlines, please subscribe to our mailing list.
We require no grant proposal or indication of how you will use grant funds. Therefore, please do not send proposals as we will not read them.
There is an application fee of $25 USD that helps defray the costs of administering this grant so that we may continue to support and fund artists' important work.
We notify each applicant of the results at the conclusion of our review process (approximately 2 weeks after each deadline), and we will display the name and work of each grant recipient and a link to their website (if applicable) on our website. To see current and past grant recipients’ work, go to our ‘About’ page. Artists retain all rights to their work. We are simply interested in celebrating and promoting the award winners.
Once an artist wins a grant, they may not apply again.
If you have questions, contact us through our contact form or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We invite visual artists 18 and older from anywhere in the world to apply.
Visual artists working in any media may apply: painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, stills of video/film, sculpture (of any type of material), ceramics, mixed/multiple medias, installation, and other new or alternative medias.
We regret that we do not accept submissions for music, theatre, or dance.
