Maryland Artists May Apply For An Individual Artist Award

May 20, 2014Arts Across Maryland

The Maryland State Arts Council's Individual Artist Award recognizes the importance of artists and their works of excellence to the cultural vitality of Maryland.

At the heart of our thriving creative sector, artists produce work that supports festivals, concerts, gallery shows, readings and countless additional opportunities for Marylanders to engage, reflect and connect through the arts. Further, artists help fuel our Maryland arts industry's $1 billion annual economic impact to the state's economy. 

Each year,  the MSAC awards $1,000, $3,000 or $6,000 to artists from across the state who are selected by a blind, out-of-state jury on the basis of artistic merit alone. The MSAC today announced that its 2015 application is open for applications in the following artistic categories: 

  • Crafts
  • Non-Classical Music Composition
  • Non-Classical Music Solo Performance
  • Photography
  • Playwriting

Applications for an IAA are due by Thursday, July 24, 2014. Click here to access the IAA application guidelines, signup for an application assistance webinar or view an application assistance video. For more information, contact Kimberly Steinle-Super or 410.539.6656 x101.
