$50,000 for Writers and Artists

Creative Capital is an organization that gives money to writers and artists. A lot of money. To date, they’ve given $45 million dollars.

Each year, they fund artists in a huge range of disciplines, with direct funding up to $50,000 and other services worth up to $50,000. That adds up to $50,000. Not bad.

This is an opportunity open to writers and artists who are residents of the United States only.

Applicants also need to be working artists, with at least 5 years of experience, and be at least 25 years old.

According to their website:

Creative Capital funds artist projects in all disciplines. No matter what genre or discipline, the most competitive projects take risks and articulate an original vision. For general information about our awards and to download our full Award Guidelines, see Our Award Program. You can learn about previously funded projects on our Artist Projects page. Please note that we are actively interested in many kinds of projects that may or may not be represented there.

They begin accepting applications on February 1st.
