Our application does not require recommendations or artist statements. It entails a simple questionnaire, a space for listing artistic/professional experience and work samples. Any essential information about your work can be entered in the description box upon uploading each work sample. Please do not list your name in your resume, description boxes, any of your work samples (including title and credit screens) or descriptions, as the jury is anonymous and applicants are identified by work sample ID.
Experience: Applicants will be asked to paste a resume or brief list of artistic/professional experience of no more than 3 pages total. If your application advances to the final round the Visual Arts Fellowship Coordinator and Visual Arts Committee Chair will review your artistic/professional experience provided to confirm your eligibility.
Work Samples: Applicants should upload the following:
Images: 10 JPGS (5MB maximum for each image)
Video: up to 5 minutes total of time-based work such as film, video and/or animation (maximum of 250MB total; accepted formats are mov, wmv, flv and mp4). If you are submitting more than one work, we suggest uploading separate files due to size constraints.
Both: Applicants may submit a combination of images/video using the following equation: 1 image = 30 seconds of video. (For example, 6 images and 2 minutes of video)
Fee: The fee for visual arts online submission is $57 payable by credit card. This includes a $45 FAWC application fee plus $12 SlideRoom usage fee. Former or current Fellows applying for a Second-year fellowship are only required to pay the $12 usage fee.
Notification: All applicants will be notified by email whether or not their application has advanced to the final round in mid March. The finalists will have an opportunity to update their portfolio on SlideRoom for the final jury by uploading up to 10 additional images/5 minutes of video. While these extra work samples are not required, applicants must resubmit their application by April 1 for the final jury. 10 finalists who are selected as Fellows in the final round will receive notification in early May. Please notify the Visual Arts Fellowship Coordinator if your email address has changed since submitting your application.
