Current Opportunities from South Arts

Southern Prize and State Fellowships

Visual arts fellowships of up to $30,000.

Deadline: December 3, 2018

The South Arts State Fellowships and Southern Prize acknowledge, support, and celebrate the highest quality artistic work being created in the American South. The South Arts State Fellowship is a state-specific prize awarded to the artists whose work reflects the best of the visual arts in the South. A review panel will select one winner per eligible state, with artistic excellence being the sole criterion. Each winner will be awarded a $5,000 South Arts State Fellowship, earn a spot in the Southern Prize & State Fellowships Exhibition, and compete for one of the two South Arts Prizes. A national panel will then convene to evaluate the body of work represented by the nine State Fellowship recipients and select the Southern Prize winner and finalist to receive an additional $25,000 and $10,000 respectively, based on artistic excellence. The Southern Prize winner will also receive a two-week residency at The Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts and Sciences.
