The South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship Program offers the largest regional, government-sponsored artists' grants in the United States. The SFCC awards fellowships to resident visual and media artists in the counties of Broward, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe, and Palm Beach.

The 2019 Application process opens September 15, 2018.

 

A multidisciplinary panel of art experts from South Florida provide an initial review of the submissions and recommends finalists to the national panel. This national panel selects the final recipients, who are then ratified by the South Florida Cultural Consortium.

 

Each county’s available funding determines the number of awards presented. Merit is determined based on individual accomplishments as evidenced by the work submitted, with the highest premium placed on coherent bodies of work.

 

All panelists are required to follow the conflict of interest policy established by the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs.

The 2019 Application process

A regional panel of visual and media art experts from South Florida is convened to provide an initial review of the submissions. The regional panel forwards its recommendations to the national panel. This national panel – with expertise in visual art, film, and media and chosen from a variety of academic and major visual arts institutions from around the country – is given the responsibility of recommending the final recipients.

During a day-long deliberation, the submissions are viewed by the national panel in a series of rounds. The panelists then reduce the selection to the final group of awardees. The funding available from each county determines the number of awards presented from each county.

The dynamics of the panel shape the selections from year to year. Merit is determined based on individual accomplishments as evidenced by the work submitted for review, with the highest premium placed on coherent bodies of work.

The national panel’s recommendations are reviewed and ratified by the South Florida Cultural Consortium. All panelists are required to follow the conflict of interest policy established by the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs.
