Mass Cultural Council is honored to announce the 2019 Artist Fellowship awards in Film & Video, Music Composition, and Photography. The awards include 18 fellowships of $15,000, and 17 finalist awards of $1,000. See a list of this year’s fellows and finalists.
The awards are anonymously judged, based solely on the artistic quality and creative ability of the work submitted. Applications were open to all eligible Massachusetts artists. A total number of 628 applications were received: 130 in Film & Video, 115 in Music Composition, and 383 in Photography.
Recent events have fomented a growing movement for racial equity and justice. Mass Cultural Council is taking this moment in time to embark on a restart and refocus of our work as it relates to racial equity, and we want to hear from you.
