The Hopper Prize $1,000 Photography Grants

5 grants in the amount of $1,000


The Hopper Prize was established to provide grants, visibility, and career enhancing validation to artists who demonstrate a serious commitment to their work.

We accept submissions for grants through a bi-annual open call. Each grant cycle is juried by a new team of contemporary curators who select grant winners on the basis of artistic excellence and the promise of future potential.

We view the field of visual art in its broadest and most inclusive sense and therefore make our awards available to artists working in any media.

The Hopper Prize is a grant-making institution and digital archiving platform offering a series of individual artist grants on a bi-annual basis totaling $10,000.00 USD.
