Working Artist Org. is a privately run charitable organization, interested exclusively in the support and promotion of great art and artists.
Budget: $1000 award
Deadline: midnight of May 31, 2017

Eligibility Requirements: This award is available to all artists worldwide, working in all traditional and new visual arts mediums, including but not limited to: conceptual, installation, drawing, painting, prints, sculpture, glass, mixed media, new media, photography and video.
If selected as our winner, we ask that the award recipient be willing to exchange one of their original works or smaller series of original works for inclusion in our collection, in return for our award.
