All applications must include the following:

Ten (10) work samples in the sequence you prefer

You must provide documentation of ten work samples as digital image files. You may choose to include full and detail shots, but each file counts as one of the ten total images. Please do not submit composite images unless absolutely necessary and with prior fellowship office approval. Do not display your name anywhere on the image (though signatures on the artworks themselves are permissible). Each juror reviews applications individually, one image at a time, on their personal computer monitor.

Image files should be saved in JPEG format (the filename will end with .jpg) at 72 ppi and 1920 pixels at the longest side. Please see the Image Formatting page under the Help/FAQ section to learn how to properly format your images.

You will be asked to provide the following information for each work sample submitted: the title of the work; medium or media; dimensions of the actual image or object; and its date (year) of creation. You can also add a brief 400-character annotation describing the medium, context, or installation of a particular work.

You may submit up to two video links from YouTube to the application site. To use YouTube you will need to register for a free account. For information about how to so this, please go to: youtube.com. Each video should not be more than three (3) minutes in length.

Video submissions should supplement, not replace or extend, the ten still images. Therefore, any video, kinetic, or time-based work included in a multimedia installation must be referenced by at least one still image in the sequence of ten. Because of the blind jury process, ideally there should be no voiceover narration, artist appearance, or name included in the video submission. However, these are permissible if they are integral to the piece. Applicability of video submissions will be subject to review by the Program Office; documentation of additional works not included in your ten still images will result in the video being removed from your application.

Résumé and artist statement

Submit a current résumé (any length) and a single-page artist statement about your work. Your artist statement should mention what you will be working on in the upcoming year. Examples of professional artist résumés are available at the College Art Association website. Please do not include your name or contact information on the résumé or artist statement. It is okay if your name appears in exhibition titles and publications.

Your résumé and artist statement should be saved as Microsoft Word documents (the filename will end with .doc), Adobe PDFs (.pdf), Plain Text Files (.txt), or Rich Text Format documents (.rtf)

Additional PDF attachment (optional)

For artists’ work that involves text, book arts, didactics, or texts that are unreadable in the images submitted. There is an option to upload an additional PDF. Please limit pages to no more than five. (2 MB size limit) The PDF attachment should supplement, not replace or extend, the ten still images. Therefore, any work referenced in the PDF must be indicated by at least one still image in the sequence of ten. Applicability of video submissions will be subject to review by the Program Office.

Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.
