Creative Capital helps visionary artists in all disciplines build thriving careers, and every year we review applications from artists ready to take the next step in their creative practices. The selected artists receive the Creative Capital Award, which includes up to $50,000 in funding for bold new projects, as well as a wide range of counsel, career development, and networking opportunities to make their work come to life.
How to apply
Artists can submit their project ideas through a free application, open this year, from February 1 to March 1, 2021 at 4pm ET. This application helps us identify a selection of artists working at the forefront of their fields. It’s designed to provoke deep thought about project ideas to determine intention, impact, timeliness, and capacity.
The application for the Creative Capital Awards is competitive—of the thousands of applications we receive, we are only able to select a limited number of artists each year to receive an award. The application also takes time to complete (requiring at least an hour) and the final results are not announced until later in the year. However, we hope that the application serves to provoke deep reflection about creative practice and project development.
