Los Angeles Artadia Awards are open to all visual artists living and working throughout Los Angeles County. Individual artists and collaboratives working in all media, and at any stage in their career are strongly encouraged to apply. Artadia Awardees are selected through a two- tiered jury process that combines local expertise with outside perspective from leading curators and artists. A preliminary panel will evaluate all online submissions and select five finalists in February. A second panel will conduct studio visits with each finalist, gaining a broader context for the artists’ work. Awardees will be selected from the finalist pool to receive unrestricted Artadia Awards of up to $10,000. The 2016 Los Angeles Awardees will be announced in early March and are eligible for the inaugural national Artadia Award.

The Los Angeles Artadia Awards are:

– Open to anyone living in Los Angeles County
– Free of application fees and project outline requirements – Merit-based
– Unrestricted

Apply If You:

– Have lived in Los Angeles for two years or longer
– Are not currently enrolled in an art-related degree program
