Artadia is now accepting applications for the 2018 Houston Awards from all visual artists who have lived and worked within Harris County for a minimum of two years. Individual artists and collaboratives working in all visual media and at any stage in their career are strongly encouraged to apply. Awardees will be selected through a two-tier jury process that employs a panel of prominent curators and one artist in the spring of 2018. This is the ninth Houston Awards cycle.

A preliminary panel will evaluate all online submissions and select five Finalists in mid-May. A second panel will conduct studio visits with each Finalist, gaining a broader context for the artists’ work. Two Awardees will be selected from the Finalist pool to receive unrestricted Artadia Awards of $10,000. The 2018 Houston Awardees will be announced in June.

The Houston Artadia Awards are:
– Open to anyone living in Harris County
– Free of application fees and project outline requirements
– Merit-based
– Unrestricted

Apply if you:
– Have lived in Harris County for at least two years
– Are not currently enrolled in an art-related degree program
– Would like to have your work seen by a panel of prominent curators

Application due May 1, 2018
