Innovate Grant is a new initiative that supports photographers and artists through quarterly grants. We’ve simplified the grant process, so that artists and photographers can focus on making their innovative work. The work should speak for itself and our application reflects that.

Grant application is straight forward so that you can spend your valuable hours making new work rather than on time-consuming requirements like writing statements, proposals, and obtaining letters of recommendation.

All that Innovate Grant requires is your:

— Name

— Email

— Grant Category (Art or Photography)

— 3-5 Images of Your Work

— Application Fee of $25 USD

– Art: Painting, Printmaking, Drawing, Sculpture, Film / Video, Mixed Media, Installation, New Media.

– Photography: Portrait, Conceptual, Still Life, Black + White, Documentary, Street, Composite, Collage.
