The $1000.00 Working Artist Grant / Art Purchase Award

Call for Artists - Submissions Deadline: January 31, 2019

The Working Artist Grant/Art Purchase Award is a meager one-time art award intended to disperse small but vitalizing bursts of funding to support an artist's ongoing art making process.

This award is available to all artists worldwide, working in all traditional and new visual arts mediums, including but not limited to: conceptual, installation, drawing, painting, prints, sculpture, glass, mixed media, new media, photography and video. We regret that we do not accept submissions for music, performance or dance.

If selected as our winner, we ask that the award recipient be willing to exchange one of their original works or smaller series of original works for inclusion in our collection, in return for our award. Work considered by the artist as of equal value, and available for acquisition can be negotiated upon receipt of the award. We do pay the artist's shipping costs. Please send us your best work for review.

We wanna make it super simple to submit your work : send us your website, or 5 images (each under 1 mb), along with your name and contact information to: [email protected]. No written proposals or CV's are required unless the artist would like to include them. There is no application form.

There is a submission review fee of $25.00, which helps offset the costs of this effort to fund meaningful work by serious artists. 

Participants agree by completing their submission to limited use of their images or other representation of their artwork and general information to be featured on this site and corresponding promotional media. All rights will be retained by the artists.

Submissions for the next deadline of the Working Artist Grant/Art Purchase Award should be submitted by midnight of January 31, 2019. We do notify all participants of the results and we invite you to sign up for our Newsletter and follow us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram. Thanks for your valued participation. It's our great pleasure to spend time with your work.
