The Working Artist Grant/Art Purchase Award
This Deadline Expired: Friday, January 31, 2020
The $1000.00 Working Artist Grant / Art Purchase Award
Call for Artists
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. Working Artist regrets that they do not accept submissions for music, performance or dance.
If selected as the winner, WA asks that the award recipient be willing to exchange one of their original works or smaller series of original works for inclusion in their collection, in return for the award. Work considered by the artist as of equal value, and available for acquisition can be negotiated upon receipt of the award. They do pay the artist’s shipping costs. Please send your best work for review.
It is super simple to submit your work : send your website, or 5 images (each under 1 mb), along with your name and contact information to: firstname.lastname@example.org. 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, payable here 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, 2020. They do notify all participants of results, and are usually around 45 days out from your deadline to select a recipient, so keep an eye on your inbox! Or sign up for their Newsletter or follow Working Artist on Facebook and Instagram for process and updates. Thanks to all of you for your support and participation.
