Media Arts Fellowships
Sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation:
The Media Arts Fellowships support the creation of new works that bring innovation to the media arts. Whether through new technologies or classical traditions, artists are encouraged to redefine, invent, explore, create and recreate visions and stories that reflect our diverse culture. Artists may be at any stage of career development, from emerging makers to those well established in their careers. The Media Arts Fellowships consists of three distinct components, each awarded annually:
The Film and Video Fellowships support media artists in the U.S. working in the broad categories of Documentary, Narrative, Experimental or Video Installation. Each of the 14 Film and Video Fellows is awarded $35,000.
The New Media Fellowships support media artists in the U.S. whose work centers around interactive, dynamic media, including, but not limited to, such computer-mediated forms as web art, robotics, virtual reality, biotechnology, interactive installations and software art. Each of the 6 New Media Fellows is awarded $35,000.
The Media Arts Fellowships in Mexico support Mexican media artists working in Documentary, Narrative, Experimental, Video Installation or New Media. Each of the 6 Media Arts Fellows in Mexico is awarded $20,000.
