My 2014 in Art Competitions

Stats on my art competition applications in 2014.

In 2014, I applied to 21 art competitions.*

I applied to: 8 residencies, 4 fellowships, 3 exhibitions/museum submissions, 3 studio programs, 2 grants/awards, 1 public art commission, and 0 professional development programs.

+++++++++++++++++++++

Four out of 21 application results are still pending.

+++++++++++++++++++++

 

I received: 1 residency.

+++++++++++++++++++++

I was also informed that I was a finalist or alternate for 1 residency1 fellowship, and 1 award.

+++++++++++++++++++++

Of the 17 confirmed results, my overall success rate was 1 out of 17, or 1 in 17, or 5.8%.

I paid $195 in application fees for 6 applications.

$$$$$$00000000000000

The highest fees were $40–45, assessed by the three opportunities in California that I applied to. I sent submissions to 12 opportunities in NY state, where I paid two organizations a total of $30. Ten applications were free.

(*I aspire to do 24 applications per “goal-year,” which starts in June. I did 15 in the first half of 2014, and only 6 in the second. To meet my goal of 24 by next June, I’d have to do 18 more. But after reviewing my commitments in 2015, I decided to target my efforts, and favor specific qualities over an arbitrary quantity.)
