  • Deadline:
    Jan. 8, 2003, 1 a.m.

Finishing Funds provides support to New York State artists for the completion of works of moving-image and sonic art - audio, film, video and computer-based media. Eligible forms include audio, film and video as single or multiple channel presentations, computer-based moving-image and sound works, installations and performances, and works for new technologies, multimedia and the Web. The awards range from $500 to $2000. New this year, we will also award 3 grants of up to $2000 each in the area of performance-based mixed media or new media works, with support from mediaThe foundation inc. The panel looks for inventive work that takes risks. All genres are eligible, including experimental, narrative, documentary and interactive performance 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. Full time enrolled students are ineligible.
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 $15,000 is awarded each year. 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 inc.
Guidelines and applications are available on the web at www.experimentaltvcenter.org or by mail after January 31, 2003. Deadline is March 15, 2003. Contact us with questions or to be placed on a mailing list.
