Complete Guide to 2020 Artist Grants & Opportunities

There are endless opportunities for artists who know where to look. 

That's why we scoured the internet and compiled the best opportunities for 2020—so you only have to look in one place. 

Each year we send our team on a mission to find the best opportunities, artist grants, and calls-for-entry for artists. From that, we created a list of the top international open calls, residencies, fellowships, and awards that we believe will benefit artists during the upcoming year.

The complete list is broken down into four categories: grants, residencies, calls-for-entry, and opportunity sites.

Looking for an easier way to view this list or want to keep a copy on file for yourself?

Download the free 2020 Guide to Artist Grants & Opportunities.

We will be updating this list throughout the year as deadlines become available, so make sure to check back often and download the latest version of the guide. If you know of an opportunity that we missed, let us know or submit the opportunity here.
