Opportunities for Artists


The JGS Fellowship for Photography:

An exciting opportunity for photographers through the New York Foundation for the Arts.

In its inaugural year, The JGS Fellowship for Photography is open to New York State photography artists, living and working anywhere in the following New York State regions: Western New York, Finger Lakes, Southern Tier, Central New York, North Country, Mohawk Valley, Capital District, Hudson Valley and Long Island. As the Fellowship is not a project grant, funds can be used however the artist’s please. Applicants are encouraged to apply with work that is already completed that demonstrates the artist's vision and voice. Applications are free and all applicants must apply online.
