Get ahead of the game this year. 

We sent our team on a mission to find the best art opportunities, artist grants, and calls-for-entry for you in 2019. From that, we present you a list of the top international open calls, residencies, fellowships, and awards that we believe will benefit artists during the upcoming year!

The complete list is broken down into four categories: grants, residencies, calls-for-entry, and opportunity sites.

Applying for artist grants is a great way for artists to supplement their income to ease the financial burden that often comes as part of being a working artist. These grants listed help artists pay for materials, studio space, or even their rent, allowing artists the time to make work without the day-to-day pressure of paying bills—giving them the freedom to make work in an unrestricted manner and dedicate their time to being fully creative. 

If you are seeking time away from your routine and obligations to create work in a new environment with new influences, a residency might be more your speed. Residencies vary in their offerings and funding, so make sure to check the fine print section of each listing. 

Finally, take a look at some of our favorite opportunity sites to search, and learn how to make sure your portfolio and professional documents are ready to apply. 

We will be updating this list throughout the year, so make sure to bookmark the page, check back often and let us know if there is an opportunity that should be listed!

Portraits: Identity and Expression

Portraiture hinges on the question of whom deserves to be shown. Beginning with religious and royal iconography, produced under systems of patronage, portraits were meant to immortalize the divine, powerful, and wealthy.

Site:Brooklyn is calling for works, across all mediums, that engage with the increasingly complex intersection between portrait and identity.
