The Hopper Prize

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: November 15, 2022 – The Hopper Prize is now accepting entries for our Fall 2022 artist grants. We are offering $3,500 and $1,000 unrestricted grants to artists and photographers around the world awarded through an open call art competition juried by leading contemporary curators.

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.

ELIGIBILITTY
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.

BENEFITS & AWARDS
Total Awards: $11,000.00 USD for visual artists. 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

  • 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.
