The National Endowment for the Arts let us know that it will host a webinar on Thursday, May 30 ( 3:00-4:00 p.m. EDT) to help applicants understand the application process for securing a media arts projects grant. The NEA's Media Arts Director Alyce Myatt will conduct the webinar, which will offer an overview of guidelines, information on selecting work samples, and advice on preparing a strong application. All of this will be followed by a brief question and answer session.
The NEA Media arts category offers grants ranging from $10,000 to $100,000 to support the "development, production, distribution, preservation, restoration, and archiving of projects that demonstrate media as art and media about the arts." The NEA defines media arts as narrative and documentary films, television and radio programs; and experimental, animated, transmedia, or interactive work. Artist and developers can use a variety of mediums to deliver their work including the web, mobile and tablet devices, video game consoles, and satellite-delivered content. Finally it should be noted that organizations can submit more than one application to the Arts Endowment if they are for separate projects.
