Creating concept-inspired art awards with a commitment to participatory grantmaking in the arts, MOZAIK Philanthropy has launched its 3rd Future Art Awards: Ecosystem X, an arts-based reimagining of life on planet Earth. The awards are open to all professional, amateur, and student artists in the United States, using contemporary art as a medium for social change. BIPOC and historically marginalized or underrepresented artists are encouraged to submit their art.
MOZAIK Philanthropy has convened an independent jury of artists to review the art submissions through a blind review process, set to award 10 featured artists with $5,000 award honorariums before the New Year. A new prize has been announced this year, the Future Student Art Prize, which will award a $5,000 academic scholarship/stipend to a rising high school senior, senior, or higher education student to advance their studies in the arts. Collectively, all prize-winning artists will showcase their artworks in a curated virtual exhibition, opening free to the public in early 2022.
Deadline: December 1, 2021
