NYFA Artists’ Fellowships are $7,000 cash awards made to individual artists living and working in the state of New York for unrestricted use. Grants are awarded in 15 artistic disciplines, with applications accepted in five categories each year. This year’s categories are:

  • Architecture/Environmental Structures/Design
  • Choreography
  • Music/Sound
  • Photography
  • Playwriting/Screenwriting

Artists Outside of New York: #ArtistHotline is also for you! Ask us questions about resources and grants in your area. 

Artists: If you don’t already have a Twitter account, create a free one now and include the hashtag #ArtistHotline in your related tweets and questions. You can also follow the conversation on #ArtistHotline on November 18 and follow @nyfacurrent for updates.

Since the fellowship program’s inception in 1984, NYFA has awarded over $27 million to over 4,000 artists in New York State. Past notable fellows include Terry McMillan, Junot Diaz, Deborah Kass, Antony Hegarty, Shirin Neshat, and Eric Overmyer among many others. NYFA’s Artists’ Fellowships are administered with leadership support from the New York State Council on the Arts, a State agency.

Inspired by the NYFA Source Hotline, #ArtistHotline is dedicated to creating an ongoing online conversation around the professional side of artistic practice. #ArtistHotline occurs on the third Wednesday of each month on Twitter. Our goal is to help artists discover the resources needed, online and off, to develop sustainable careers. This initiative is supported by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation.
