The application process is straightforward and the requirements are minimal, so head over to our portal to get started now or read on for more guidelines.

Applications for the 2024 NOT REAL ART grant are open to artists 21+ working in any 2D or 3D medium. Applicants must live and work in the United States and may not apply if they are previous recipients of the NOT REAL ART grant. Artists must submit between three and five works to qualify. Please note: Our formerly annual grant now occurs every two years.

Founded in 2019, the grant is one of our flagship programs and a true cornerstone of our work in the creative industry. Once again, we are delighted to offer financial backing to six self-driven artists with a no-strings-attached award package of $2,000.

Along with financial support, each winner receives publicity, including an interview on our podcast and a full-length feature published on NOT REAL ART. “The money is great, but the grant is also about audience and promotion,” says Scott “Sourdough” Power, NOT REAL ART’s founder and publisher. “We want to give artists a platform for their work, let them tell their stories, and make them feel seen.” We welcome impactful ideas from marginalized communities, underrepresented voices, and work that operates outside the standard gallery or museum system. The grant will remain open until midnight (PST) on Jan. 1, 2024.

Applications will be reviewed by a panel of judges who are experts in their fields in the visual arts. Judges for the 2024 NOT REAL ART grant cycle include graffiti wunderkind Man One, arts writer Morgan Laurens, and intellectual property rights lawyer Joshua Wattles, among others.
