Artadia is now accepting applications for the 2018 San Francisco Awards from all visual artists who have lived and worked within Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, or San Mateo 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 eleventh San Francisco Awards cycle.

A preliminary panel will evaluate all online submissions and select five Finalists in mid-August. 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 San Francisco Awardees will be announced in September.

The San Francisco Artadia Awards are:
– Open to anyone living in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, or San Mateo counties
– Free of application fees and project outline requirements
– Merit-based
– Unrestricted

Apply if you:
– Have lived in the Bay Area 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 August 1, 2018
