The Hopper Prize is a grant-making institution and digital archiving platform offering a series of individual artist grants on a bi-annual basis totaling $10,000.00 USD.
The Hopper Prize was established for the sole purpose of advancing the field of visual art by providing direct financial assistance to artists in the form of unrestricted fellowships. We view the field of visual arts in its broadest and most inclusive sense and therefore make our awards available to artists engaged in artistic practices spanning all methods of production.
Winners are determined by a panel of distinguished guest curators on the basis of artistic excellence and the promise of future potential. Our program seeks to support artists who demonstrate a serious commitment to the field and who currently need direct financial support to further their artistic practice.
10 artists each receive $1,000.00 USD annually, administered via 2 grant cycles in Spring and Fall
30 artists from each grant cycle will have their work archived at hopperprize.org
All work submitted will be reviewed by The Hopper Prize Team for possible Instagram features @hopperprize
