Please note, this event has expired.
Amplfy the Arts!
This winter, Peak Arts Prize returns – bigger and even better – to fund projects that amplify local arts to new audiences. Because the program is growing and changing, we encourage all interested applicants to visit www.PeakArtsPrize.org and join us for this Community Info Session. We’ll present the updated program design and answer your questions. This session will also be broadcast live on the Cultural Office’s Facebook Page, www.Facebook.com/ArtsCultureFun.
Eligible applicants can apply on PeakArtsPrize.org between January 6 – February 6 at 12:00 p.m. Brief video + entry form applications are invited in three categories:
- LARGE ARTS ORGANIZATIONS (over $100,000 annual budget) – $10,000 Grant
- SMALL ARTS ORGANIZATIONS – $7,500 Grant
- INDIVIDUAL ARTISTS – $4,000 Grant
A panel of expert judges will select the Prize grantees and 2 honorable mentions in each category. These nine will advance to a special People’s Choice round, February 25-March 10 at 12:00 p.m., where the community can vote to award a special $1,000 “People’s Choice” prize and support the projects directly from the ballot. Regardless of the ultimate results, all participants in this round will benefit from the positive visibility and fundraising opportunity for their projects. The results of the judging panel’s granting decisions and People’s Choice Prize will be shared with the top nine applicants on March 10 and made public on March 11.
Winners of category grants will receive special PR support and visibility for their projects from program partners.
Peak Arts Prize is a program of the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region, powered by The Fund for the Arts, a fund of the Pikes Peak Community Foundation
