A preliminary panel will evaluate all online submissions and select six Finalists in early April. A second panel will conduct virtual studio visits with each Finalist, gaining a broader context for the artists’ work. Three Awardees will be selected from the Finalist pool to receive unrestricted Awards of $10,000 each. The 2021 New York Awardees will be announced in April. Prior New York Artadia Awardees may be viewed on the Artadia Artist Registry. *If you have temporarily relocated due to COVID-19 please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
