Call for Entries for San Francisco Bay Area Visual Artists: Artadia Awards, 2016
Deadline: August 1st, 2016 by 6:00 PM (PST)
San Francisco Artadia Awards are open to all visual artists living and working throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Individual artists and collaboratives working in all media, and at any stage in their career are strongly encouraged to apply. Artadia Awardees are selected through a two-tiered jury process that combines local expertise with outside perspective from leading curators and artists. A preliminary panel will evaluate all online submissions and select five Finalists in August. A second panel will conduct studio visits with each Finalist, gaining a broader context for the artists’ work. Awardees will be selected from the Finalist pool to receive unrestricted Artadia Awards of $10,000. The 2016 San Francisco Awardees will be announced in September and are eligible for the inaugural national Artadia Award.
The San Francisco Artadia Awards are:
– Open to anyone living in the San Francisco Bay Area, CA
– Free of application fees and project outline requirements
Apply If You:
– Have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for a minimum of two years
– Are not currently enrolled in an art-related degree program
– Would like to have your work seen by a panel of prominent curators
