Apply Now for 2022 Emerging Artist Award

Date: Nov 29, 2021

Deadline: Feb 5, 2022 - 12:15 am

The Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Awards Foundation established the Emerging Artist awards to support and encourage Alberta’s most promising artists at an early stage of their careers. The awards are not project grants but are designed to support the unique development needs of emerging artists whether it be supplies, further study or experiences, funding to travel for auditions, study or work, or even income replacement for non-arts related employment. 

Who is an emerging artist? Emerging Artists are defined as those who have mastered the basic techniques of their art form through education and/or apprenticeship and are in the early years of launching a professional career. Emerging artists have created and publicly presented a modest body of independent work and are ready for the next steps in their artistic development. Artists from all art disciplines including performing, visual, literary, cinematic, architecture and design are encouraged to apply.
