Finishing Funds 2006 - Grants to NYS Media and New Media Artists

  • Deadline:
    Jan. 19, 2006, 12:04 p.m.

FINISHING FUNDS provides individual artists with grants up to $2,000 to help with the completion of diverse and innovative moving-image and sonic art projects, and works for the Web and new technologies. Eligible forms include media as single or multiple channel presentations, computer based moving-imagery and sound works, installations and performances, interactive works and works for new technologies, CD ROM, multimedia and the Web. We also support new media, and interactive performance. Work must be surprising, creative and approach the various media as art forms; all genres are eligible, including experimental, narrative and documentary art works. Individual artists can apply directly to the program and do not need a sponsoring organization. Applicants must be residents of New York State; students are not eligible. The application requires a project description, resume and support materials, including a sample of the proposed project. Selection is made by a peer review panel. About $25,000 is awarded each year. Announcement is made in late May.
The program is supported in part by public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a public agency, and by mediaThe foundation.
Postmark Deadline: March 15, 2006
Guidelines and applications are available on the web at in the ETC News Section or by mail or email.
