Working Artist Grant
A reader sent in this –
Please look into Working Artist Grant. Charges $25 as a submission fee which goes directly to the individual who runs it not to a nonprofit organization. Does not have a legitimate jury selecting artwork, but just collects funding from applicants so as to make a profit. Winner receives $500 but not really because they must then donate an artwork to the organization.
Any comments, research?
I have applied too,
no answer email has ever arrived to me
Then I have checked the list of beneficiaries of the grant and my name was not in it.
I believe is legitimate but good for wasting time (and money)
I’ve also applied to this only once without knowing anything about it.
Good to see these comments here. I fell for it but find it a bit too shady. It’s all part of trial and error but having this website is truly helpful. I was stung by Tvak in Ahmedabad India at a unsatisfactory art residency. Will post about it.
I’ve submitted to this a couple of times, but never won anything. It’s a Purchase Award, and (now up to $1000.00) and the website states this. I don’t believe it’s a scam, but I doubt I’ll be applying again.
