Thank you for a successful first round!

On May 1, 2012, deviantART introduced the Creative Grants program -- a source of funding allowing artists to make creative dreams a reality. We're pleased to announce the first cycle of funding has ended and we've received over 500 applications! Thank you to each and everyone who submitted their creative project. You can check out the recipients and their projects here!

Get ready for the next cycle!

We'd also like to announce that our next cycle of funding is now open. Apply by describing the artistic endeavor of your dreams through our official application form. If you didn't get a chance to participate in the last round, now's the time to get involved! 


WHAT TYPES OF PROJECTS WILL YOU CONSIDER?


We're looking for exciting and art-related projects that need a little push financially. Think devious!

Here are a few examples of what Creative Grants could be used for:

  • Installation of an art exhibition
  • Additional artist materials or resources to support the production or public display of art
  • A piece of work that requires specific tools
  • Costs to run a creative event

If you're looking for money to pay your rent, go to classes, upgrade your Group to Super status, buy a Premium Membership or pay off your student loans, this is not for you.

WHO DECIDES RECIPIENTS?


Applications will be reviewed by the Creative Grants Board, which consists of staff, volunteers and senior members. All applications in a given cycle will be reviewed by members of the Board fairly and Grants will be given to as few or as many as the review panel deems appropriate within the budget of available funds. The Creative Grants Board will pick those projects that they believe will benefit particularly from a Grant and give those artists the support they need to make it happen. Grants will range between $250 and $750 for this cycle of funding, with a total funding of $10,000 available. 

Who Can Apply?


This opportunity is open to all deviants across the globe who are 13 years of age and older with a registered deviantART account.

THE PROCESS


  • On 3 month cycles, deviantART will accept applications from artists seeking to fund art-related projects. Please do not apply for a project scheduled to take place within the next 3 months. Plan ahead!
  • Applications can only be made using the official Creative Grants form.
  • Use of funds should be scheduled to take place within 3 months of receipt of the Creative Grants.
  • If your application is approved, you will be expected to post a Journal and photographs to show off some element of the project that received funding. We want to see the results of your hard work and what we helped support!
  • Until you receive a Grant, you can continue to apply, but a deviant can only make one application in any given three month cycle, and once s/he receives a Grant s/he is ineligible for future Grants for a period of 2 years.

What happens If you receive a Creative Grant?


The lucky few who are chosen to receive Grants will also be given a beautiful accolade on their deviantART Profile Page to celebrate their success.




Please note: The Creative Grants application process is currently closed. Thank you for your interest.





We're pleased to announce the first cycle of funding for the Creative Grants program has ended and we've received over 500 applications! While the recipients are chosen, get ready for the next cycle of funding by submitting your application!

ya it just takes time and even after 11 years, I still miss my dad, but it doesn't hurt as much now as it did then. You do heal, but it still stays with you for the rest of your life. -hugs-

you'll be fine as long as you have others you can lean on.

Quite proud of DA for doing something like this.
For a select few it will help immensely for making art into a career, whereas the funding would never exist.

Good job DA

Wait, I have two questions. Does this just cover the visual arts or are the literary pieces going to be accepted as well? And also, is this just for getting your work out there or can the grant be applied to say paying for my college fee? Not a student loan, but the actual cost of getting into college.

:iconcerebralaperture:
CerebralAperture Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Student General Artist
The money can only go to the actual costs of creating the work of art not the education you need to understand how to produce said work of art. It says "If you're looking for money to pay your rent, go to classes, upgrade your Group to Super status, buy a Premium Membership or pay off your student loans, this is not for you." Sorry

I think Nanowrimo should get more funds. Sure, a lot of people donate and they recently got some money out of some facebook charity giveaway thing (which I couldn't vote for since I'm neither on Facebook, nor am I sure that I can vote on some US american poll thing).
Still, they need some stuff to keep their servers running and to keep going with their young writers programs. Sure, visual art is important but let's think about all the awesome books that could still be published if they would only be written.

Typo denoteth 'typographical error', which in this case is not valid sith penning 'less' in stead of 'fewer' is but 'grammatical error'. I singly amend'd it on benevolent basis lest it be commit'd anew. I meant not to be uncouth.

It would be cool to use the grant to open a local art school or conservatory Can the grant be used for things like creating art schools or art workshops, or is it just for public galleries/ displays of art? Or could you use it to fund a public art gallery that has workshops open for the public? 0_o That is what I would use it for but I don't know if the grant money could be used for something like that.
