The Hopper Prize

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: May 14, 2024 – The Hopper Prize is now accepting entries for our Spring 2024 artist grants. We are offering grants in the amount of $3,500 (2 available) and $1,000 (4 available) to artists and photographers worldwide working in all media.

The Hopper Prize was established in order to increase the recognition of artwork created by artists and photographers. Our aim is to advance artists’ careers by providing them with unrestricted financial support that is coupled with a platform for increased visibility. We accept submissions twice a year via an open call.

The Hopper Prize is open to all artists aged 18 and older working in any media. There are no restrictions on genre, subject matter, or media. We welcome entries in all media. We are committed to supporting artists from diverse cultural backgrounds at all stages of their professional careers. All artists are encouraged to apply.

In total, 6 artists will receive unrestricted cash grants totaling $11,000 this cycle. Grant awards are unrestricted and may be used any way the recipients choose.

  • $3,500.00: 2 artists will each receive a $3,500 (USD) grant
  • $1,000.00:  4 artists will each receive a $1,000 (USD) grant
  • 30 artists will have their work archived at hopperprize.org
  • A selection from the submissions will be featured on our Instagram feed @hopperprize
  • Additional exposure will be available to winners through our Journal: Insights into Contemporary Art

In addition to grant awards, our shortlist, and Instagram reach, we will be providing an additional platform for exposure via our online Journal Insights Into Contemporary Art. We launched this digital publication to give artists a new channel to amplify their voice while providing an in-depth look at their work, practice, and background. Grant recipients and shortlisted artists will all receive the opportunity to publish an interview to include any work of their choosing as a means of providing continued support beyond the open call.

We collaborate with contemporary curators holding prominent positions at major institutions in order to select our grant winners. Our open call provides you with a direct path to get your work in front of these forward thinking exhibition makers. Jurors for the current awards are:

  • Lauren Rosati is Associate Curator in the Department of Modern & Contemporary Art and Research Projects Manager in the Leonard A. Lauder Research Center for Modern Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City… see more
  • Maya Brooks is currently the Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at the North Carolina Museum of Art (Raleigh and Winston-Salem)… see more

We made our grant application simple to reduce the stress of submitting your work and save you time. The application is short and can be completed in quickly.
