Innovate Grants for Artists and Photographers

Deadline: 7 May 2020
Open to: artists and photographers aged 18 years or older from around the world
Benefits: each winner will receive a grant of USD 550


Innovate Grant is a new initiative that supports artists and photographers through quarterly grants. They believe that new ideas come from sparks of inspiration and aim to provide just that, access to small and mighty bursts of financial support so that you can focus on making your important and innovative work.

Innovate Grant was created out of the frustration of applying to grants with time-consuming requirements. These lengthy applications took valuable time and energy away from making new work. Countless hours were always sacrificed in either writing artist statements, crafting project proposals and getting letters of recommendation.

Keeping the grant process simple enables them to continue to support you on your important journey of creation, inspiration, and innovation.


Visual artists and Photographers 18 years and older, from all around the world are eligible to apply. All media and genres are accepted:

Art: Painting, Printmaking, Drawing, Sculpture, Film/Video, Mixed Media, Installation, New Media.

Photography: Portrait, Conceptual, Still Life, Black + White, Documentary, Street, Composite, Collage.


Winners will be featured on Innovate’s Grant website and will receive a one time unrestricted USD 550.00 grant. All applicants retain the rights to the work they have submitted.
