Grant for New York State Artists
free103point9 is pleased to announce the 2011 Distribution Grant for New York State Artists providing support for the distribution of new works in film, video, sound, new-media, and media-installation. Funding is available from free103point9 through a regrant from New York State Council on the Arts' Electronic Media and Film Program. Grant awards will assist artists in making works available to public audiences and may include, but are not limited to: moving image and sound works; duplication of preview, screening and exhibition copies; promotional materials including documentation and schematics of media-installation and new-media works. The rental or purchase of equipment essential for exhibition/distribution by individual artists is also eligible. Artists may request funding support up to a maximum amount of $10,000.
Successful grantees will also be awarded the opportunity to work with a project mentor who will offer guidance as grantees execute their distribution and exhibition plans. This mentor will have expertise in the grantees' specific genre of media art.
Note: This grant is for works that have been fully completed between January 1, 2010 and October 31, 2010 only. Grant funds may not be used for production or post-production costs or production deficits.
