The Greater Columbus Arts Council and The Columbus Film Council encourage and support cultural development in the Columbus area. In this capacity, the Arts Council and CFC have partnered to present the 2015 Media Arts Fellowship Program as part of the Arts Council Individual Artist Fellowships. Established in 1986 to recognize outstanding local artists, the Arts Council awarded fellowships in painting, sculpture, photography, and crafts in its first year. Since then, over 210 awards, in a variety of disciplines, including visual arts, crafts, film and video, creative writing, music composition, and choreography/movement arts, have been made.

The Individual Artist Fellowship program provides unrestricted grants to artists of outstanding talent and ability who currently live in the City of Columbus and/or Franklin County, and have done so for at least one year.

Students enrolled in a degree- or certificate-granting program of any kind at the time of application, or during the grant award period, may not apply.

The 2014 program will distribute 3 fellowships to media artists, in the disciplines of film, video, and digital moving image.

APPLICATION DEADLINE : August 28, 5:00 p.m.
