Innovate Grant supports artists and photographers through quarterly $1,800.00 grants.
We believe that new ideas come from sparks of inspiration and aim to provide just that, access to mighty bursts of financial support so that you can focus on making your important and innovative work.
Innovate Grant was created out of the frustration of applying to grants with time-consuming requirements. These lengthy applications took valuable time and energy away from making new work. Countless hours were always sacrificed in either writing artist statements, crafting project proposals and getting letters of recommendation.
We believe that time is one of the most valuable components to fostering creativity and innovation. Our aim is to provide the time you need to be fully immersed in your ideas and in creating your work.
Keeping the grant process simple enables us to continue to support you on your important journey of creation, inspiration, and innovation.
Innovate Grant distributes (2) $1,800.00 grants each quarter, to one Visual Artist and one Photographer. In addition, (6) honorable mentions (3 in art and 3 in photo), will be featured on our website and join a growing community of vibrant and talented artists.
Grant cycles are in the Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.
We believe your work should speak for itself and our grant application reflects that. All that we require is your:
— Website (Optional)
— Grant Category
— Images of Your Work
— Application Fee
Winners will be featured on our website and will receive a one time unrestricted $1,800.00 grant. All applicants retain the right to the work they submit. Two (2) distributed each quarter, four (4) times a year.
Honorable Mentions will be featured and promoted on our website. All applicants retain the right to the work they submit. Six (6) distributed, three (3) per category, each quarter, four (4) times a year.
The application fee (non-refundable) helps offset our administrative costs, enabling us to continue to support artists and the creation of their innovative work.
