To all Massachusetts artists in Drawing, Poetry, and Traditional Arts who are interested in applying for an MCC Artist Fellowship but haven’t started yet: there’s no time like the present. The deadline is Monday, October 7, 2013. Unrestricted grants of $10,000 and finalist grants of $500 are awarded to Massachusetts artists through a competitive, anonymously-judged process, based on artistic excellence of the work submitted.*
Since we are using different application systems than in past years (Culture Grants Online for Poetry and Traditional Arts; CallforEntry.org for Drawing), we’d recommend you begin your application as soon as possible to familiarize yourself with the forms.
You can find full program guidelines and information here:
Upcoming: Applications in Choreography, Fiction/Creative Nonfiction, and Painting will be accepted December 15, 2013-January 27, 2014.
* Note: the Traditional Arts category is not anonymously judged and has additional criteria.
