2015 Visual Arts Competition

Deadline: Sunday, March 15, 2015

The Visual Arts Competition awards five $5,000 grant awards and Luminarts Fellowships for excellence in visual arts (drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, mixed media, sculpture, moving image, etc.)

Applicants submit their images online for a preliminary blind juror panel. Finalists are selected for a second juror process that takes place in a gallery exhibition at the Union League Club of Chicago. All finalists are asked to choose two of their pieces to exhibit during the gallery exhibition. Following a private viewing throughout the day, the winners are selected by a final juror panel. Winners are announced in the evening during the Visual Arts Exhibition event, hosted by Luminarts.

Luminarts Fellows are eligible to apply for Project Grants, which support career development, residencies, master classes, exhibition costs, performance expenses, professional travel, and more.
