What our past prize recipients are saying
“Receiving an unrestricted monetary award from Dave Bown Projects … afforded me the opportunity to be able to buy additional supplies I needed, in particular, larger panels to paint on. Also, the recognition on their web site gained me more web site traffic and I got the opportunity to work with a new gallery as a direct result of the recognition from the award.”

What our past jurors are saying
“It was an honor … The variety of submissions was impressive, ranging from intimate figurative drawings to large-scale abstract paintings and from sculptural constructions to gallery-sized installation work. The creative impulse evident across the works was inspiring. I hope this important program will continue to grow and reach more artists in the future. It is a rare, generous, and much needed support for artists.”

Deadline December 15: From Ferguson to Gaza, we can see the way that militarism has a direct impact on the lives of all of us.
Militarism refers to physically violent and coercive ways of settling conflict or maintaining control what we see in the everyday actions of armed security forces such as the military, militia, police, border enforcement, and school security.
But do militarist policy decisions actually keep our communities safe and secure? What if we instead invested in the things that help communities, countries, and the globe thrive?
Help us change the way people think about safety and security—and about the tools that should be used to achieve them.
Create a poster-
We need graphic artists, printmakers, street artists, comic artists, and other print-based visual artists who are interested in creating unique posters for a traveling exhibit.
Submissions should explore:

* Alternative approaches, new projects, or manifestos that seek to achieve lasting peace and justice
Each submission must include:
* Digital image of poster of sized 8.5” x 11” or 22” x 28” (300-600 ppi; TIFF or best resolution JPG; maximum 50MB)
* A 250-word artist’s statement
* A bio, maximum of 250 words
Artists may submit more than one work.
Terms and conditions-
Jurors will select an initial set of work to be the core of a nationally traveling exhibit.
AFSC will print and professionally display the chosen work in our traveling exhibit.
AFSC will display the chosen work on our website and make it available for free digital download to the public.
The exhibit website will identify each poster by artist, title of piece, short description, and your website if you so choose.
By participating in this project, artists are donating their work to AFSC to use in the traveling exhibit, in digital replicas of the work available for download for free, in informational brochures, and on the web. Work will be fully credited to the artists, with contact information included.
Selected artists will receive a $50 honorarium and a print copy of the catalog of the traveling exhibit.
