Applications now open: NewYork City Visual Artists Artadia Awards 2015

Artadia is pleased to announce its inaugural New York Awards. The online application is now open to all visual artists living within the five boroughs, working in any media, and at any stage in their career. The application will close on April 15th, and funds will be distributed to Award recipients in summer 2015. The 2015 New York Awardees will each receive up to $20,000 in unrestricted funds and will gain access to a lifetime of professional support.

Artadia Awardees are selected through a two-tiered jury process that combines local expertise with outside perspective from leading national curators and artists. A preliminary panel will evaluate all submissions and select ten Finalists based on the merit of their work. A second panel of curators will then conduct studio visits in New York with the Finalists, gaining a broader context for the artists’ work. In May 2015, up to five Awardees will be selected and announced from the Finalist pool.

The New York Artadia Awards are open to any artist who has lived within New York City's five boroughs for two or more years, and is not currently enrolled in an art-related degree program. Artadia's application is free of charge and does not require a project outline. We highly encourage artists to apply if they are interested in having their work seen by a panel of prominent curators and artists.
