NYSCA Funds The Distribution Of New York Media Artists Work

  • Deadline:
    June 17, 2002, 1 a.m.

The New York State Council on the Arts' Electronic Media & Film Program announces the availability of funding towards the distribution of recently completed independent media arts projects by New York artists.

With management assistance from National Video Resources, awards of up to $5,000 will be made on a competitive basis for audio/radio, film, video, computer-based work, and installation art incorporating these media. This funding category was established to help professional artists in the State gain greater exposure for their work.

These awards can be used for distribution expenses such as marketing, dubs/prints, transfers, closed captioning, subtitling, or CD-ROM release costs. Funding decisions will be based on the artistic quality of the work and the relevance of the distribution plan.

Deadline for submission is August 15, 2002. Applications will be available by June. Awards will be announced in December 2002.
