The Hopper Prize was established in order to increase the recognition of artwork created by artists and photographers. Our aim is to advance artists’ careers by providing them with unrestricted financial support that is coupled with a platform for increased visibility. We accept submissions twice a year via an open call.
We are currently accepting submissions for the Fall 2020 grant cycle.

Our jurors will be selecting 5 artists from our open call who will each receive $1,000. The jurors will also select a shortlist of 30 artists who will have their work archived at hopperprize.org.
Grant awards are unrestricted and may be used any way the recipients choose.
When submitting your work, you will have the option to opt-in to be considered for possible Instagram features on our feed @hopperprize, where we currently reach an audience of over 46K. Our editors will be featuring select submissions on a rolling basis prior to the application deadline.
In addition to grant awards, our shortlist, and Instagram reach, we will be providing an additional platform for exposure via our online Journal Insights Into Contemporary Art. We launched this digital publication to give artists a new channel to amplify their voice while providing an in-depth look at their work, practice, and background. Grant recipients and shortlisted artists will all receive the opportunity to publish an interview to include any work of their choosing as a means of providing continued support beyond the open call.
We are committed to supporting artists from diverse cultural backgrounds at all stages of their professional careers. All artists are encouraged to apply.
